Based on the preview, the device likely has two cameras. A forward facing 
5Mpix camera, and a backwards (user) facing webcam (probably VGA res, but no 
solid details on that one, yet). If the 5Mpix main camera is indeed the same 
module as on the N97, it should also able to do VGA video. If you're thinking 
using either for Skype, note that there is still no version of Skype mobile 
that actually does video, so don't hope too much.
