Steve Jobs: WWDC announcements will not disappoint
If an e-mail conversation between an Apple fan and Steve Jobs is for real, the upcoming WWDC show will exceed your wildest expectations. The original message to Jobs, written after Google introduced the impressive Android 2.2, basically asks if Apple is planning any announcements at the developer's conference that will blow Google out of the water. The CEO replied that, "You won't be disappointed." Considering that the next generation of the iPhone is expected to be introduced at the show, the response by Jobs is loaded with innuendo. From pictures of the next-gen model, we can infer that video conferencing will be on board with a front facing camera, something not possible yet on Android (until June 4th when the EVO 4G is launched). Somehow, though, we would think that it would take a  few more new features unique to the iPhone to make sure that no Apple fanatic is disappointed. Multitasking, while new to iPhone users, is one of the things that other phone platforms-including Android- have been able to do. We could bang our heads against the wall and try to guess what new features won't disappoint Apple fans, or we could just relax and wait for June 7th when Steve Jobs walks on to the stage.

Funny, the article says that on Android video conferencing is not yet possible. And some how the ad for the EVO 4G which has video conferencing available is right next to the article. Once again PhoneArena shows off its top flight reporting.

Read the whole sentence before you blast the article. " From pictures of the next-gen model, we can infer that video conferencing will be on board with a front facing camera, something not possible yet on Android (until June 4th when the EVO 4G is launched)." They say until the Evo is launched.

I read the whole article. But when the capabilities of a phone yet to be confirmed officially thru Apple or given a release date, are presented in such a way as to make it seem like it would be the first of its kind when the EVO 4G has been announced with a launch date and confirmation that it will have video conferencing on board and is launching in 11 days seems biased. And that was the initial point I was trying to make.

In all fairness, the article says a front facing video conferencing feature, meaning the user can see the other perosn and be see at the same time. You can currently do a lot with live videoe on Android devices, but I do not bellieve anyone has a front-facing camera yet. That being said, Apple never really innovates as much as it presents iteself as innovating. Their real innovation has been image and advertising, so they fact that Jobs is talking it up is meaningless. Wake me up when they surpass 8% of the market share.

Actually, just like HockeyDood said, the EVO will have that. But it will be interesting to see what/if Apple has anything new that will "blow android out of the water". I seriously doubt they can top Android 2.2

Dear Apple Executives, You have been badmouthing all the tech that you beloved Iophone doesn't support, however lets get to the heart of the matter. If you plan on sticking with AT&T you are sealing your fate. Get with the times and commit to a product with Verizon, Sprint, and Tmobile. Then go head to head with google because if you dont its a simple numbers game and you are gonna loose!
