iPad Camera Accessory Incoming – Rumor

We’ll take this one with a pinch of salt, but there are rumours going around that the Apple iPad could get an external camera to make FaceTime calls with it.

This rumour started because of the iOS 4.2 release date of November being mentioned last week at the Apple Special Event. In that presentation, Steve Jobs said that everything goes to the iPad for iOS 4.2 which included HDR photography amongst other things. The problem is that the iPad can’t do HDR without a camera and certainly can’t make FaceTime calls.

We think this was more of an oversight and that Jobs just happened to mention HDR but didn’t mean it. In terms of FaceTime, we also think that this wont be usable other than receiving video on calls.

If it is true and the iPad does get an external camera then we could see it in a few months time ready for the November iOS 4.2 release.

Another thing that “might” happen is the release of the iPad 2 with cameras integrated although it seems a little early to release a second model.

We’ll just have to wait and see if “everything to iPad” actually means that for first gen iPad owners.
