Apple iPad 2 camera icons appear in iOS 4.3 Beta 2

iPad 2 dual-camera inclusion outed by iOS 4.3 Beta 2 icons

Updated: Apple iPad 2 officially launches with front and rear-facing cameras, a dual core processor, and a slim new design. Read all about it here

The expected dual-camera inclusion on the upcoming second generation iPad is now all but a given with further icon-based evidence fuelling the iPad 2 features fire.

Spotted in the recently released Beta 2 model of iOS 4.3, iPad-bound application icons for Apple’s video calling FaceTime technology, the familiar Camera application and the currently Mac only PhotoBooth software all point strongly in the direction of the predicted rear-facing camera and video recorder joining a second, lower-res front-facing offering.

Whilst the iPad 2 inclusion of dual-cameras and FaceTime capabilities will allow second generation Apple tablet adopters to hold video conversations with iPhone 4, latest generation iPod Touch and certain Mac owners, the arrival of the current Mac OS X-based PhotoBooth App will enable the morphing and adaptation of images caught by the device’s pair of snappers.

With just weeks until Apple COO Tim Cook is expected to unveil the iPad 2 in the medically induced absence of Steve Jobs, rumours of what features the upcoming tablet will support have been rife. Earlier this week, following unconfirmed claims by ‘trusted’ sources, an iPad 2 case leaked with a cut-out hinting towards the inclusion of an SD card slot to be found on the device’s flank.
