The launch of the next incarnation of the iPhone is only a few months away. Now is when the rumors start to really heat up. The folks at nexus404 have uncovered an Apple patent filing entitled “Apparatus and Method for Compensating for Variations in Digital Cameras”. Most of the patent was just a discussion of different ways to put cameras in devices and methods to improve camera quality.

One of the pictures, posted above, was of an iPhone with a front-facing camera. This is hardly proof that such a camera will make its way into the iPhone 2010, but it at least shows that Apple is looking in that direction. It's unlikely they'll actually go through with video-calling until the major carriers are more ready to handle it.

That said, Apple could be hoping to get in on the ground floor and be the first major manufacturer to push video calling. They certainly have the pull to make AT&T get their network in gear.
