iPad tests FaceTime ahead of dual camera inclusion update

iPad follows iPhone and iPod down FaceTime route

Unfazed by the excitement surrounding the latest fleet of tablet devices to be announced during IFA last week, Apple has reclaimed top tablet talking honours as a tantalising leaked image shows the iPad testing the company’s video calling service, FaceTime.

The blurry shot released by 9 to 5 Mac further boosts the already rapidly circulating rumours that the next generation iPad will be on the receiving end of a front and rear camera makeover as well as adopting Apple’s FaceTime video calling feature during the annual product cycle in January.

The debug screen, which is similar to those spotted shortly before the iPhone 4 was launched earlier this summer, suggests that Apple’s tablet device is to offer the same FaceTime service as the latest iPhone incarnation and the recently updated iPod Touch due for release this week.

Whilst dual cameras were already amongst the hottest tipped additions to the iPad for version 2.0, the inclusion of video calling would see the Apple tablet match the capabilities of the recently announced Samsung Galaxy Tab, the first true competitor to the iPad’s tablet crown.
