    Use 8130 as webcam!

    I saw someone talking about using their cell phone as a webcam...2 questions.

    1: Has anyone done this?

    2: You think it could be done while running MSN on your phone? I know that's a 99% "no", but thought it'd be interesting to see.

    As the Camera its self has No Video, I would have to say a big No. Also even if/when RIM does make Video available, using it as a web cam through its self is asking a bit much of a handheld device.

    The 8130 has Video option. You can record Videos. HOWEVER, look what I just found today...how awesome is this!

    I think I saw an article on here about the N95 being used by field journalist for this very reason. That they could be able to record and send live feeds to the studio to air. I think my next phone will be a Nokia!

    WOW a BB WITH Video. Nice. Well I hope TMO catches up to your carrier. The 8320 s the second BB with a Camera and still no Video. But thanks for teaching me something!
