Apple isn't masking its video chatting intentions very well

It used to be difficult to find clues of video chatting in the iPhone OS.  Apple even tried to hide the video-chtting files at one point.  No more.  In iPhone OS 4.0, the iChat Agent is right out there in front for everyone to see running on the iPhone OS 4.  

In fact, this is so blatant that we’re wondering if Apple’s using it as a stealth marketing move, just so that the tech-savvy don’t get tempted by competing phones with video chat capabilities being released in the coming months.
