Nokia pimps its rear cameras, HTC the front ones: watch a demo of the HTC 8X wide-angle video chat cam
One of the differentiating features of the upcoming Windows Phone 8X by HTC, is its front-facing camera, capable of 1080p video recording for the first time, but also featuring very wide 88-degree angle f/2.0 lens, that allow up to four people to fit in that annoying video chat you are prepping over the integrated Skype.

Now we have a live demo video of that same feature, and it is indeed something to see such a large amount of the surrounding environment fitting into the frame, making it a perfect fit for both those live streams of the family Christmas gathering, or your next frat boy party.

The HTC 8X also sports a dedicated audio amplifier, which was demonstrated to pump out some deafening sounds, so you want be left asking "What?" after each sentence either.

I am really liking the innovation on the Windows Phone smartphones... but the OS is just so limited! :/

WP8 will share the same kernel at Windows 8 – meaning native C/C++ code support (allowing game devs to use the Havok Engine etc.), Direct X hardware acceleration, and very little effort to get regular Windows code running on a WP8 handset.

Expect BIG things.

How can you state that when WP8 hasn't even been released for viewing yet? I call BS.

Well unless your some sort of third person omniscient in the story of my life it doesn't really matter what you think. I use Google+ Hangouts everyday.

Your really missing out. You should start using your secondary camera more. It's awesome, really!
