New iChatAgent Process in iPhone OS 4.0 Suggests Video Chat

Although a front-facing camera on the iPhone has been rumored from time to time and it's one of the most requested hardware features for the iPhone, battery drain during video conferencing is always a concern on a mobile device.

This is the best hint thus far of video chat on the next iPhone. You can see the agent running in the screenshots below...
