Apple to release camera-touting iPad before end of year?

People who aren’t fans of the iPad are quick to point out its shortcomings. It doesn’t have a memory card reader, they’ll say. It doesn’t have a physical keyboard, they’ll mention. It doesn’t have a camera… well, this last bit just may be changing sooner than you think.

There’s a rumor going around that Steve Jobs and the rest of the crew in Cupertino are already planning an updated version of the iPad and this new tablet will be available in time for the holiday shopping season. The kicker is that yet unnamed iPad (iPad Pro? iPad Elite?) will have a built-in camera.

This is possibly a response or a pre-emptive strike against the flood of tablets that are coming down the chute in the next few months. These mostly Android-powered devices come with features that the current iPad does not have, like a camera. Throw a shooter in there and the iPad can stay on top.  And with them releasing a new OS for iPad, FaceTime can’t be left out.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they purposely left out the camera. You know how Apple is.

    I am thinking this is a yes. But, I personally believe there wont be a total line up refresh. I am thinking just the top-of-the line models will. The 64GB with wifi, as well as the 64GB with wifi+3G. At least initially.

    Then, as usual, in June of 2011… all of the ipads will be refreshed. I imagine the new ipad will also have bumped spec (this year as well).

    But. Blah.
