New iPad with FaceTime coming soon
Apple may be readying the release of a new iPad in time for the holiday shopping season, according to a report. The refreshed iPad is expected to be equipped with a FaceTime compatible camera and the new iPad iOS 4.2. The report from AppleInsider also suggests that Apple is looking to get FaceTime compatibility on all Apple mobile products before opening the standard to the rest of the world.
Assuming the report holds true, the new iPad may be released at the same time that iOS 4 will come to the iPad as iOS 4.2 in November. The new OS will bring long awaited features such as multitasking and folder support to the device.
FaceTime is expected to come to Mac OS X’s very own iChat in the near future as well, and possibly even to Windows through another chat client. Other rumors surrounding a refreshed iPad suggest the device may sport dual-cameras, additional RAM, larger storage options, and even a higher resolution retina display.
