Apple iPad 2 camera confirmed by iOS 4.3 app
Second-gen Apple tablet to sport camera
With the second generation Apple iPad hotly tipped to land with dual-cameras in the coming weeks, an iPad snapper app unearthed in the SDK of iOS 4.3 has all but confirmed the camera touting credentials of the iPad 2.
Seemingly clarifying what is already widely expected from the upcoming tablet release, expectant Apple fans will be disappointed to see the snagged camera app screen shots show a predicted iPad 2 capable 1024 x 768p resolution, identical to that of the current model iPad. Despite seemingly quashing hopes of an iPad 2-bound, iPhone 4-esque Retina display, this lack of screen progression could simply be attributed to the screen grab capabilities of the current model.
As Apple continues to expand its range of devices capable of running the company’s FaceTime video calling technology, the imminent arrival of the iPad 2 is widely predicted to host a front-facing 2-megapixel camera allowing for video calls with a 5-megapixel snapper taking up residence on the rear.
What is being claimed as a dummy model of the iPad 2’s form factor was caught in a hands-on video at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas last week showing the upcoming second gen tablet sporting both front and rear cameras on a redesigned body that features a larger speaker and a slightly angled edging.
