Apple decided not to include a front-facing camera on the first generation of iPad’s and there have been plenty of rumors floating around about the specs of the second generation iPad. But a new image of an apparent iPad 2 case has revealed that we could possibly get a rear-facing camera too.
Let’s start with the rumors. As we reported just yesterday, shipping for the next generation iPad — to be called the iPad 2 or iPad 2G — is intended to happen within 100 days from now. That is not too long to wait if you think about it, and we have just had more of an indication that the iPad 2 will come with a rear facing camera via an image for a Crystal iPad 2nd generation Case.
As you can see, there is a rather noticeable hole in the top-left hand corner of the case, where lets be honest, nothing but a camera could go.
We have seen this on the iPhone 4 and the latest generation of the iPod Touch, so now it’s time for the iPad to play catch up and also include it in their successful brand of tablets.
Does this image prove that we will infact get a rear facing camera for the next generation of iPad though? Short answer is: No. But it is a strong indication none-the-less.
With other tablets in the market giving us the option of a rear facing camera, do you think Apple are giving us this option as a safe bet? Sign off in the comments below.
