    Hey Everyone,

    I have the iPad 3G and noticed there was this dot on top of the LCD screen, which looks like it could be a webcam.

    Does anyone have any idea what it could be or what it is?

    Thanks :D

    Probably a light sensor for auto dimming the screen.

    YES, it's the ambient light sensor.

    BUT, there is actually a hole in the frame, where a MacBook-camera would fit. But, the question is, will it be supported and where will it actually connect to.....probably never in the iPad 1st gen.
