Microsoft has expanded its LifeCam line with the addition of the LifeCam HD-3000.

Given how much Microsoft discusses its latest webcam in comparison to texting, this 4.3-inch tall camera is obviously targeted towards a younger crowd. It has also been optimized to work with Skype, Windows Live Messenger, AOL Instant Messenger and Yahoo! Messenger.

The LifeCam HD-3000 is equipped with a 720p HD sensor, TrueColor Technology for a brighter and more colorful picture in "virtually any lighting condition" and it delivers a 16:9 widescreen aspect radio. Other useful features include the a universal attachment base and a noise-cancelling microphone.

The LifeCam HD-3000 will be available for $39.95 starting next month.
