FaceTime and other apps...
FaceTime is cool and all, but I only know about 4-5 people with iPhone 4 and don't really talk to them a lot...when does everyone think Skype or other apps will pop up so you can use the front camera for web-cam?

Sometime between now and when Apple releases an API letting third parties use the front camera for video chats.
I'd wager sometime in the fall around the iPod event at the end of the summer. New iPod Touch, iPad gets iOS 4, and iPhone 4 gets iOS 4.1 with video chat API. Maybe even the new iPod Touch will get it too. Don't hold your breadth on it working over 3G though for any app.

1. Skype already charges for skype-to-skype over 3G starting in August. They will charge for video calls over 3G as well, and...
2. If AT&T won't let Apple do it over 3G, they sure as hell are not letting Skype.
But maybe Skype will release a version that does it over WiFi, and we can use 3GUnrestrictor for it via jailbreak.
