If Apple really wants iChat to be big, and to work well on an iPad, they will probably have to release a Windows version. I don't see Apple being so tremendously committed to video chatting as perhaps others do, and I offer as evidence the continued lack of Jabber support for video conference in iChat on the Mac. And now they're going to put a camera in the iPad -- and for what? To proliferate a feature that fundamentally doesn't work very well?

I feel sorry for poor old Ralph Johns who haunts the Apple forums explaining how to open firewalls and do various other magic to get iChat to work.

I use iChat to remotely connect to machines and I know plenty of typical users that are fine with GTalk or AIM through iChat. I use Adium since I connect to multiple accounts and like the tweaking I can do.

Can you make video chat work with iChat and a Windows user? As far as I can tell, that's not possible. You're stuck with Googletalk and their lousy browser plugins.
Please don't be insane.

I believe they pulled the camera from the iPod touch because it was not good enough. Apple will wait until there is a camera that will show pictures and video worthy of HD with a form factor that fits in a small device such as the iPad at the right price. Anything less will result in a stream of disappointed users and pundits spouting their
disdain all over the internet forums.
I suggest you do without until Apple installs one.

I find it hard to believe that a company as large and high tech as apple cannot get a camera to be good enough for the IPad Look at the quality of camera s available from Sharp with the Japanese camera phones , The major players Nokia and suchlike have nothing on the specs and functions of the KDDI , NTT , and softbank phones in Japan.
