O rumor vai de encontro a outro que indicou a presença de um espaço vazio para iSight já no modelo atual de iPads.

Na minha opinião, uma câmera frontal para videoconferências (e outras inovações, como uma já citada que permitiria que a tablet identificasse o seu usuário através de reconhecimento facial) faz bastante sentido no iPad — ao contrário de uma traseira, para fotos/vídeos. Imagine só, alguém segurando um dispositivo com uma tela de quase 10 polegadas pra tirar foto de alguém? Not good. 😛
