December 7th is the day Boxee will be unveiling their new beta software. They also have a new hardware box on the way to go along with it. Boxee users were sent an email this morning bringing their attention to the announcement.
A developer was messing around with some configuration files which fooled the 3.0 beta software for iPhone to think a video camera was present. As we and others have posted, we have a pretty firm confirmation that video will be an option in the next iPhone. The screenshot shows a switch between still or video capture and has an "auto-focus camera", "magnetometer" (digital compass), and "Voice Control".
This summer should show the release of the final 3.0 firmware along with new version(s) of hardware.
