The next version of Apple’s popular iPad looks likely to feature a front and rear-facing camera, according to Reuters.
The speculation that cameras will be included in the next model stems from four component suppliers for the iPad that are preparing for a new round of production in the first quarter of 2011. Two of the suppliers have stated that they are producing the same components as in the original iPad. However, the other two claim that a new slimmer and lighter version of iPad is coming, with front and rear-facing cameras.
These predictions don’t really come as a big surprise, as these are components that set competitive tablets apart from the ipad. So if Apple wants to remain competitive they probably need to include these components.
