Rosetradamus Adds New iPhone Prediction to "Les iPropheties"

If Digg founder Kevin Rose is right, Apple’s next generation iPhone will include not one, but two cameras–the second a front-mounted video camera designed for iChat AV.

During a recent episode of his weekly Diggnation vidcast (see above), Rose claimed that the new iPhone reportedly being prepped by Apple (AAPL) for a summer release will enable video conferencing over AT&T’s (T) high-speed 3G wireless network.

Like most such predictions, Rose’s should be taken with a grain or two of salt. His last iPhone premonition, which had the device featuring slide-out keyboards, dual batteries and CDMA and GSM support, was laughably inaccurate. That said, he did accurately predict the debut of iPod nano ahead of its 2005 debut. So there may be something to his latest claim. Certainly, it sounds plausible.
