New OS4.5 BB Video Capable Of USB Webcam/Speakerphone Duty?
Anyone know or care to speculate if the new video recording functionality available in the new 4.5 OS allows for the BB camera to be used as a USB webcam video device?
On a similar thought, for desktop or laptop computer users could a BB phone possibly function as an all-in-one USB tethered webcam, microphone, speakerphone device?
I think that could be some cool functionality for video/voice enabled Instant Messenger applications. Maybe only a creative device driver away.

does the video recording 4.5 work for the 8100
It doesn't work for 8100.
But if webcam is available through Curve....I am buying one.
I'm on 4.5 and I don't think it would work. The camera doesn't show up as a device when its plugged into the computer. I guess it could be possible with an OS upgrade if RIM decided to implement it.
Awesome idea though.
