Apple iPad 2: Camera and FaceTime Likely

The current iPad was expected to come with a camera, but Apple let us down. We now have high hopes that the iPad 2 — or whatever it will be called — will come with a front facing camera to allow for FaceTime calls. This is according to some recent news posted on AppleInsider.

It seems that a document from Apple shows that they have been looking for a Performance QA Engineer to work on the iPad; they want the person to have a great knowledge of software engineering with technical expertise.

The job listing also ask if they have experience for testing video and audio capture — this says camera to me. Currently FaceTime is only available on the iPhone 4, but it is expected to become a new feature on the upcoming iPod Touch fourth-generation 2010 model.

We have known for some time that Apple plans to offer a camera on its next iPad device, but this is the best proof yet. We do not know when the second-generation iPad will be released, but it could be in Q4 2010 or in January, which would be one-year after the launch of the current model.

It will be magical.

I'll be very glad if that iPad really have a camera, u know, camera and multitasking are the two things I eager to get on iPad.
haha, if that's really a future iPad camera, means I can take videos free on the go, and enjoy the happy times video everywhere? then I don't need any video conversion tools like ifunia iPad video converter to do the video conversion for me any more? hmm, maybe can‘t make it, I also need the tool to do converting movies.
Anyway, get the camera, Apple!@

Not sure how well face time would work on an iPad, holding it at face level is not an easy task given its size/weight, it would mostly be a conversation between nostrils
