    MacRumors reports that iOS 4.3 Beta 2 includes and image, under the sheets, of a few new iPad icons that we haven't seen before. The image is of the iPad homescreen with 3 new apps. Facetime, Camera, and even Photobooth are included in this firmware.

    Now this doesn't mean that the iPad 2 will have a rear camera, but it definitely means that it will have a front. You will now be able to cross-Facetime with all the other iDevices including Macs. I don't think Apple would have let the iPad go without a camera for another year.

    The article goes on to say that there were filters included in the firmware as well "Thermal Camera, Mirror, X-Ray, Kaleidoscope, Light Tunnel, Squeeze, Twirl and Stretch". These are presumed to be for Photobooth, which should be somewhat similar to what we see with the Mac app.

    Well, we did it everyone, the iPad 2 is now officially getting a front facing camera!

    The iPad has already got a frame which will take a camera from a MacBook
    So We should not be too surprised, just happy.

    While I believe there will be cameras that those images appear in the beta does not mean that we will see those features in the released iOS. Case in point are the gestures which are not supposed to appear until iPad 3.

    Just thinking about my iPhone and my current iPad. Can you attach the two so that the Iphones camera works with the iPad?

    Camera question?

    Will a front facing camera allow you to photograph other things such as groups or cars or mountains etc?

    There are attachments for the ipad, specifically for the camera to connect to it. You can get it from best buy, wal-mart, or the apple store I am sure. THere may be other places as well.

    There are a pair of apps called Camera A and Camera B. One goes on each device and allows the iPad to access the iPhone camera to take pictures. I don't believe it is a jailbreak app but I am not jailbrone and don't have an iPhone so can't attest to that or to how well the apps work.

    I agree and already own one. However they won't work with a Sandisk CF card. Bummer
