FaceTime Could Land on Second Gen iPad Before Christmas

The second gen iPad is expected to land around April time in 2011. This would follow the pattern that Apple [AAPL] uses for the iPhone in that a new model is released each year.

However, we are still hearing more rumours that Apple want to push FaceTime in a big way which could mean that in November when iOS 4.2 for iPad launches, we could also see a second generation iPad.

New features on the second iPad would of course include front and back facing cameras allowing FaceTime to be used. We also expect a bump up in RAM from 256MB to 512MB and perhaps a higher resolution display.

We have heard rumours also going around about the first gen iPad getting an external camera for FaceTime calls, although this method sounds a little cumbersome, but might be essential to keep first gen iPad owners happy with their new’ish gadget being replaced by a newer model.

We are not sure if there is any substance to these rumours other than guess work and putting 2 and 2 together, but it’s certainly a possibility with the release of iOS 4.2 coming soon and a big push for FaceTime.
