iPad 2 release to host front-facing camera following leak

Apple iPad 2 front-facing camera confirmed by screen protector leak

The upcoming second-generation Apple iPad will feature a widely expected front-facing camera, new leaked images suggest.

Spotted on a leaked shot of a claimed iPad 2 screen protector, a cutout for a front-facing snapper will reportedly see the imminent tablet arrival capable of supporting Apple’s FaceTime video calling technology.

Launched alongside the iPhone 4 last year and now compatible with the latest generation iPod Touch and a range of Mac computers, FaceTime allows users to make video calls between Apple branded devices over Wi-Fi.

Recent speculation surrounding the iPad 2 has seen the mooted device pegged as touting everything from a dual-core processor to a carbon fibre body. The inclusion of front and rear mounted cameras, however, has remained the most widely expected inclusions for the expected device.

Previous camera related leaks have seen apparent video calling screen shots emerge as well as camera and FaceTime icons emerge in iOS beta updates for Apple’s market leading tablet. This latest leak all but confirms the iPad 2’s camera touting credentials as well as suggesting the camera will sit centrally over the device’s 9.7-inch display.

What is your most desired inclusion for the Apple iPad 2, cameras, Flash or a lighter, thinner body? Let us know via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
