“Somebody’s watching” – iChat, recorded and streaming video coming to iPhone 3.0?
Businessweek and several blogs have posted recent articles speculating on video support in the forthcoming iPhone 3.0 … likely to be debuted at WWDC in June. 9 to 5 Mac’s Seth Weintraub has been on this story for months and has posted “iPhone made” videos using Qik, a streaming video app loaded on to a jailbroken iPhone. Qik was submitted to the Apple App store for review last Fall, however, it’s not yet available. Cue Carly Simon’s “Anticipation.” Good news… You may not have much longer to wait. iPhonAsia suspects that soon after June 9, there will be several video apps, including Apple’s own preloaded apps, that can use iPhone’s camera to record + edit videos (iMovie) or upload live streaming video to servers thereby allowing onlookers to watch as live events unfold.
