Requesting A Feature From Apple..
This is the email I sent to Apple through their product review forms.
As a vlogger, I am finding it difficult to get that perfect device that allows me to easily make a youtube video of myself and upload it. I think that an AMAZING feature for the next iPhone (that would get ALL youtubers to buy iPhones), would be the ability to record HD video from a front-facing camera.
The iPhone 3GS is excellent, but I think this feature would turn it into a TRUE all-in-one device for media-centric Apple types.
HD is very important because now that YouTube is 16:9, any videos made on the iPhone are not the proper size for the YouTube player and need to be cropped to fit the 16:9 player and you lose a lot of quality and focus doing that.
Having the front-facing camera would make blogging SO simple. You could just put it on the dock, and blog away as if it were a MacBook, and then upload it directly.
The link below is a mock-up I've made for what I would like to see in the next iPhone. It has been VERY well-received on iPhone-centric forum websites.
thank you very much for your time and consideration. I do not request any compensation for my ideas, I just would REALLY like these features to come to the iPhone so that I don't have to leave the iPhone for a competitor.

You'll want to send your feature request to here:
Apple - iPhone - Feedback
This is the form to report bugs and feature requests. They do read and tabulate them.
You're better off starting a campaign to ask people to send your feature request to here. My thinking is if they get enough of the same feature request, they'll start to consider it.
I wouldn't assume the product design group reads all of the forums.

Ummmm...taylorh? Did you miss t he first line where he said he sent it to Apple, or the last line where he provides the same link you did? He just wanted to share with the rest of us what he'd done. He wasn't writing to Apple on the forum.

Leave the design as is and move it off AT&T. I knew I would sacrifice a little connectivity moving from my HTC Touch on Verizon to the iPhone. Boy did I underestimate it. Better hardware by far. Worse network by far.
