It's just a new name. Calling it facetime camera really isn't all that logical since it's just an ordinary webcam. iSight wasn't a very good name either. But I guess webcam isn't either. So let's just call it Whitney Huston.
If you open up a specific model and look under tech specs you should find the weight.
About speed of a flash drive, they talk about twice the performance or something, but that's just at raw write/read-tests.

For the new lineup at http://www.apple.com/why-mac/compare/notebooks.html the MacBook Air lists a FaceTime camera rather than an iSight camera.
What's the difference?
Also, the chart doesn't show the weights of each model anymore. Does anybody know where those are listed?
This page (Page-Down) says it the FT Cam is thinner than the iSight:
Until Apple publishes more technical data or someone gets and test a new MBAir, that is the best I can offer.
By the by, how does Flash Drive speed compare to, say, a 7200 rpm hard drive?
It depends. Some info here:
You can search the web to compare Mac SSD performance to HD. There is a lot out there.
