    Well, since the iPad homescreen can turn any which way and still be right side up, when the ipod touch comes out with facetime (rumor) and facetime begins to work via email address instead of phone number, could a camera be released to plug into the dock connector on the bottom of the iPad and act as a webcam for facetime and Skype/iChat video chatting??

    The idea seems very possible, especially since the software is already there. And the camera connection kit is already out as a connection via the dock connector.

    Comments please.

    there is defiantly a possibility. but if that were true it would aslo work with ilder ipod touches and iphones. apple is all about making money(purchasing new ipods) if this comes true then we will see it a bit later on in the year after ppl have bought the latest ipods

    True, but you also would need specific software to run it, which may not be released for older iPods. Plus... Everyone wants the "newest device" out there.

    It would work really well if an accessory like this were released for the ipad and maybe iPhone 3GS. (but not for older ipods or iPhones).

    Hmm, ill have to check the cydia store for using the front camera for skype or something. That would be awesome though!

    And apple would never approve an app like that anyways.
