    I cannot see this happening as a webcam would need a power source. The connection to the iPad does not supply power.

    i would not see a battery or dc powered webcam as an issue or obstacle.. Why is this perceived as an issue?

    i have a 64 GB wifi 3G iPad1, and have a lot of programs on it. i would be happy with a web cam solution of any type.

    I don't know why, we have had other members also hoping for a solution here. I guess if someone did come up with a self powered unit there would still be the problem of having Applications identifying it, which then would involve Developers getting on board. It sounds simple but I'm thinking the 'big picture' is altogether different. Sorry I can't help you.

    By 2012 the camera would cost more than the IPad 1.

    I doubt that!

    I believe our throw away mentality does not run that deep.

    Some enterprising aftermarket company will be only too happy to provide a powered webcam solution for the millions if iPad 1, and itouch users out there...

    Still leaving the question on the table.... Doubters should present plausible logic. Low hanging fruit has been explored already.

    I love a good decomposition of a problem ...out of which can come a possible solution...

    You're suggesting that someone will spend research, development, production and marketing time to build an accessory for a device that's no longer made, which an unknown number of people (probably few) would buy. That seems illogical to me, but there have been plenty of failed enterprises built on little logic, and maybe you'll get lucky and someone will build what you want and you can buy one before they go out of business, lol.

    Well I am an iPad 1 user and got I pod touch 2nd gen ..I also need cam..if still no cam in ipad2 then there was a chance , but as they had in advance devices so it seems difficult right now...well I don't think so few will buy..I love my iPad one , no matter what happens, because it's 1st tablet pc for me and world. Many reasons to keep iPad 1 ..if we can have some camera working with blue tooth , I would love to have it .. Any how's it's never ending debate..
