Reuters has another source confirming the already existing rumour that the iPad 2 will include a front and rear facing camera, from Largan Precision, which also supplies cameras for the iPhone 4. Their ‘sources’ claim makers of parts of the new iPad are gearing up for a new round of production in the first quarter.
Front and rear facing cameras are one of the few rumoured updates coming to the iPad 2 but I can’t say that its something I’ve been crying out for on the current iPad, or even how much casual use it would get if it was there. As a mobile blogging device I can see the inclusion of a camera would be handy while live at events etc. but the iPad is too large and heavy to be holding up for family snapshots or to record magic moments on video.
