Are there any Android devices with front-facing cameras?

I think currently only the Dell Streak and HTC Evo 4 have a front-facing camera, and they rely on 3rd party apps for video calling. I keep searching (I have to admit ignorance in this regard since I never ever had any use for a front-facing camera )

...oh...well, the point being that only since Gingerbread does Android OS natively support multiple camera. So hardware manufacturers had no incentive to build in front-facing cams. Google's own Nexus was the only Froyo phone to run a tweaked version of Froyo enabling multiple cams.

@JanSt: LOL. I didn't know until my wife pointed it out the other day when she inadvertantly hit something that showed her face on the screen rather than what she was trying to take a picture of.
Perhaps this feature makes up for the lack of a flash?
