    Front camera is a must. They can't leave us with the lame one we are dying with.

    8 megapixel front camera.

    Why do you want a better front camera? It is only used for facetime and it's the network that can't cope with more traffic. When 4G is widely available it will make sense but until then I don't think anyone would thank them if they put an 8Mp camera on that couldn't be used!

    I'm pretty sure many people use their front camera to take pictures >_> I know I do

    The judge that allowed Sony access to records that have nothing to do with them has a lot to answer for!
    From my experience with computer forensics, everything has to go through an independant third party to assure what is given to sony is relevant. From what I've read, this is definitely the case with his impounded drives. I would assume the same would apply with twitter and IRC, but I haven't ever had to deal with that. Just hard drives in my case. The last one I dealt with involved deleted files, and the party suing certainly did not get a copy of the drives. Only deleted files that would directly apply to the case. As far as I know, if sony were to give anything to Apple obtained from Geohot, he'd certainly have a slam dunk lawsuit against sony.

    While I WILL be buying a 5 to replace my 3gs, I certainly won't be buying a ps4 to replace my PS3. Not because I am boycotting all sony products, but because I don't agree with sony's business model in regards to the PS3. I don't appreciate having features removed by updates. Nor do I agree with their lawsuit against Geohot. It would be fair to say that since SCEA thinks they have the jurisdiction here, I'm boycotting SCEA products. Which the camera that would go in an iPhone 5 certainly does not fit in.

    I know a lot of ppl that use the front facing camera. I don't think it needs to be 8MP but any sort of upgrade is better than the VGA we've got now.

    Strange, I've never used the front camera except for the one time I made a facetime call.

    I guess I'm just a freak!

    I would maybe like the back camera improved a little bit, but I think the front-facing camera needs to be HD. 1080p for BOTH cameras would also be great!

    Hahaha. Why on Earth would you need something that big on the front? Part of the reason Facetime operates so smoothly (for the most part) is the lower image quality on the front camera. 2MP MAX, and don't even expect to see that. I'm not counting on it even being upgraded at all.

    The only reason they would even need an 8mp camera is to appeal to the morons that think it actually makes a difference.

    I had a HTC evo4g for about a week and it had a 8 mp camera. The photos I took were absolute garbage. My friends iPhone 4 takes better pictures, hell I think my iPhone 3GS takes better pictures.

    YES! This is what the next iPhone needs. Digital zoom is some crap.

    On a different note, why is the Sony CEO commenting on the next generation of iPhone? Shouldn't he be more worried about getting his company out of the gutter? Honestly, Sony has fallen behind these days.
