    Better chances it'll come to the iPad first with the A1 chip.

    I figure eventually someone will create an app or, more likely, an existing app will add support for facetime. Perhaps AIM, fring, qik, etc? Apple is trying to make it an industry standard (which would mean other phones could "facetime" with the iPhone), so there is no reason why even existing webcam chat software couldn't add support, allowing you to facetime from your PC to an iPhone.

    But no camera or phone

    I'm not sure I'd want my face blown up to that size anyway.

    Same reason they didn't add video recording on the 3G on the 4.0 update. They want you to buy thier NEW product, not keep the old one and get everything from the new phone on your old phone.

    I very much doubt you will get facetime on the 3Gs. Makes sense. Don't blame them.
