    And which way would you be forced to hold it if the camera was build in? Portrait of-course. This is not a huge incovenience like you make it sound. There are plenty of Apps that force use of portrait or landscape. If I had to choose one that was docked to the iPad or mobile, and sitting else where, I would choose the one that docks. Then I can just get up walk around with the camera, and not be forced to be stationary.

    I like the idea of a camera, but frankly do not think I would use it that much. I have a camera on my phone and rarely use it. so far as video chat, that could be useful, but thats a mic, and camera and who knows what else that needs to be added to the device, and the horsepower needed to push live video could be just too much for the battery.

    The iPad does have a mic, and 1GHZ A4 should be plenty to push live video, even on a 3G connection.

    I really would not use it on a regular basis... a little clip-on or stand alone bluetooth camera might be nice though

    I don't see a need for a camera on the Ipad unless it was for use as a webcam. It would be kind of weird trying to hold the Ipad, and then press the button on the screen to snap the photo.

    A webcam seems more logical to me. IMO.

    I don't know if I agree. I'm sure any front facing chat camera would have some sort of facial recognition software so it can track your face.

    The iPad will have to have a camera as a number of devices that are competing with it will. For instance the HP Slate will have 2 cameras. Hopefully the iPad 4G models will have at least one and be here by the summer of 2011.

    code in addy book

    The code in address book means nothing. Sure, a camera would be nice, but the code is just left overs that apple never tidied up when they were changing iPhone OS to run on iPad. It's just like base code sort of

    I am confident that they will offer a camera in a near generation. I also do not think it will matter if it is in landscape or portrait mode for taking pictures. The focal point should be usable in any position.

    A camera i wouldn't really like on it, for the size of it a web cam would suit it better.
