    A day after the existence of a front-facing camera in the iPad 2 was confirmed by screenshots found in iOS 4.3 Beta, 9to5 Mac have unearthed evidence that there will also be a back-facing camera included, but interestingly enough it’s also found that the back-facing camera, which will be the one you use to record videos and take photos with, is only 1 megapixel. The front-facing camera, however, which will be the one used for FaceTime of course, and for taking pictures and videos of yourself, will be VGA, the same as the iPhone 4 and fourth-gen iPod touch. 9to5 Mac say that they have managed to deduce all this good stuff because they have heard from a source that K94 is the code name for the iPad 2, and they speculate that the reason the iPad 2’s back-facing camera is only 1 megapixel is because the device’s tapered edges don’t allow space for anything more sophisticated. Can this really be true? Will the iPad 2 really only have a 1 megapixel back-facing camera? Does your iPad really need a camera anyway?
