According to a report in the Daily Telegraph today, Apple has posted a job advert on its website for a â€œquality assurance engineer to work on video and stills capture with the iPad media team.â€ This innocent little ad has led to a lot of speculation that Apple might be looking to feature a camera in the next version of the iPad, especially since tech experts have already discovered that the iPad has a slot in its frame that is the perfect size for an Apple iSight camera. And, as if that wasnâ€™t enough evidence, the Telegraph also reports that developers have found code within the iPadâ€™s address book that would enable users to add a picture to an entry, although of course that could just mean photos that youâ€™ve imported. The article concludes by saying that Apple always meant the iPad to have a camera, but including one proved to be too expensive in the end, so the idea was ditched, at least for the first iteration of the device.
