Sure, 2009 may seem like quite aways away, but in around a dozen months or so, you should be able to acquire Microsoft's first HD webcam for the consumer market. Announced at VoiceCon 2008, TANDBERG will be responsible for delivering said device as a part of Redmond's unified communications platform. Apparently, the aforementioned firm is "expected to deliver the camera in conjunction with Microsoft's intended support of high-definition video in its next release of Microsoft Office Communications Server," and if all goes to plan, it should be released during the first half of 2009 for between $300 and $400.
