iPad 2 Dual-Cameras Rumour Confirmed (kind of)

Posted on Dec 1 2010 - 5:43pm by Richard Sharp

Last week rumours emerged that the iPad 2 would come equipped with two cameras, one on the back and one on the front. Today this rumour has taken a huge leap forward with a report detailing a company that they will supply the dual-cameras to Apple.

Largon Precision, a company known for being the supplier of the front and back cameras featured on the iPhone 4 has been reported as signing a deal to ‘broaden’ their partnership with Apple for future devices. They are the sole supplier of lenses to Apple so this is actually a pretty big deal, possibly strengthening the speculation. However, like most good rumours this one has yet to be confirmed or denied by Largon Precision.

The addition of Dual-cameras is pretty much a certainty with many users wanting to use their iPad’s with applications like Skype, MSN and of course Apple’s own Facetime. If included it would mean iPhone 4 owners could have ‘facetime’ conversations with iPad owners for the first time – ideal if you are away from home a lot or just like to be nosey.

Other rumours include the addition of a USB port, a second dock connector and retina display.

What would you like to see on the iPad 2?

    This is so cool. It's brilliant for people who do interviews and will allow them to record themselves as well at the same time

    • I’d like to have a full-size Retina display on the iPad 2, along with front- and rear-facing cameras.

    • I’d like iBooks to have a Preferences option to scroll single pages for each book chapter on all ‘iDevices’ similarly to how we read Web pages, rather than only having an enforced page break. Built-in speed-reading functions similar to those in QuickReader would make the iPad ideal for broad adoption by schools.

    • I’d also like Apple to provide insertable silicon or plastic caps as standard in the box to protect the exposed ports on all iDevices, rather than having to send for Portectors from the UK, especially after Apple claims that the liquid sensor has been triggered on the bottom of my iPhone, even though I am absolutely certain that it has never been exposed to moisture any more dense than steam accumulated in a bathroom after a shower.

    I would like to see a semi transperant key board which acts as a cover to the ipad screen. Like a flip keyboard which acts as a cover for the screen.
