New iPad with FaceTime coming soon According to sources cited by AppleInsider, an iPad with a front-facing camera and FaceTime will likely be released soon, breaking Apple's traditional 12-month product cycle for "i" devices.
The sources claim that the refreshed iPad is already in advanced testing stages, just five months after the launch of the first-generation tablet.

Expected launch date for the second-generation iPad? The Q1 2011.

The site also speculated that Apple is hoping to embed FaceTime into all its iOS devices before opening up the standard to the community.

FaceTime has become the main selling point for all new iOS device, with new TV ads boasting about the software rather than new hardware enhancements to the devices.

This was obviously coming that why I told most of the dummies who I knew was gonna buy the thing on launch day to wait a little longer. Not even a year yet and their device will be already out of date.

Ouit of date? For facetime? I know dozens of people with iPhone 4's and none of them have even tried it yet. Not really making the existing iPads out of date. More memory would make the new ones a bit faster, maybe a retina display. But still wouldnt make it out of date.

What? A New iPad? You mean Apple suckered all those people into buying version 1 only to release a new one with features like a camera that should of been in version 1? Say it isn't so.

It is out of date because the first-gen devices don't have cameras.
