Woh. What the hell is the matter with you? So someone makes a single statement that doesn't align with your POV on Apple and you automatically call them fanboy or fanboi or however the hell it's spelled? I don't even know what a fanboy is. I've said both positive and negative things about Apple. Dude I was just saying something. You didn't need write a thesis.

It's surprising how little effort theses require these days.

Well bud you're gifted with attention to detail..

I can actually think of some good uses for a back-facing camera on an iPad. Bar code scanning. Augmented reality apps. The ability to take a snapshot then sketch over it for design ideation. It's all about the apps... no, you're not going to buy an iPad explicitly for photography, but a camera is a fantastic peripheral for a CPU these days.

I have an iPad to take on business trips since my company doesn't let me do anything personal with my work laptop (no personal email, IM, Facebook, etc.) If I could video-chat with it it would be almost perfect for that use. Which is fine, since now the wife and kids use the thing so much I leave it for them when I travel, and will probably be picking up an iPad2.

Let's see:
The hardware has already been developed and deployed successfully. Parts bought in greater bulk are cheaper. The main initial cost would be altering the back to accept a camera lens, and probably flash. We could cut and paste the design out of the CAD software for the iphone, since we left the notch and circuit position for the front facing camera in place from the beginning.

Skip the Retinal display. Good idea, but poor yield in needed volume is probable from the retinal supplier. Leave that down stream until the cost come down and yield goes up. That will be hot the year after next.

How to market the new rear camera? No one makes a camera, of any actual cost that a consumer can purchase (or at all) with a giant monitor attached. No one has actually had this sort of display unless you were using a bellows style camera like Ansel Adams. We could add some photographic overlays to assist composition ( thirds or a drag, size and rotate golden rectangle, or magnification ), and it would look fun and interesting at the keynote and in the store. Maybe throw in black and white and zones like Ansel, you might pick up a few of the intelligentsia.

So, I say, it might work. If you had a prototype to play with, you might be surprised what you could do with it.

Now, when you think of taking pictures with a tablet, yes... that is pretty silly. But for the purposes of facetime, it makes loads of sense.

I haven't used facetime, and I rarely video chat on my Mac, but one feature of facetime on the iPhone that i think is great, is the ability to use the rear camera. I don't care to show my face to others when i'm talking, but if i could call my mom so she could watch her grandson open the presents she sent him for Christmas, that's another story.

This will surely be on the next iPad. However, it won't likely be as good as the iPhone 4... I'd guess the same camera will be on the front and rear.

More likely, they could have made it work, but held it in reserve for version 2. Think of much of the hardware and software Apple comes out with. Version 1 always only covers the basics. Even the most obvious things are left out, and I really think part of the reason is to allow them to keep on a regular upgrade cycle.

The price didn't go up, but neither did the amount of flash memory. I strongly suspect the savings in lower flash prices went to paying for the retina display instead of increasing the capacity.

I have a MBP and an iPhone. The iPad falls somewhere in between. It is too big to lug around and too limited to be a replacement for a MBP. I don't have any time to sit around a coffeehouse anyway. At work I have a MacPro with a 30" cinema and my time off is better spent on things other than surfing the net. If I want to watch video I prefer the large LCD in the the family room.

But, were there not stories on AI and other sites that showed the internal guts of the iPad showing a mount where a camera could be hooked up? And not having a camera in the first iPad iteration and Samsung Galaxy Tab does, does not mean Samsung came up with a good idea. It's not as if miniature cameras are new or anything and is a revolutionary, game changing, good idea. It could be considered rather an 'inevitable' addition. And I'd much rather have a tablet OS built from the ground up versus MS trying to stuff a desktop Windows into a tablet form or have Google say their latest Android OS is not tablet optimized, so Samsung sticks in an even earlier version of Android OS into their device over whether the first iPad has a camera or not any day!

By the same rationale you can write to Samsung about this video ad and tell them to not highlight everything that the iPad already does, Navigation, e-Reading (Apple needs to give that up to Kindle, also), Web Browsing, Augmented Reality... The only thing Samsung can "tout" as remotely new and different from the iPad and Great Ideas is Video Conferencing... Right?!... Because didn't Apple's iPad already have the "great idea" of the other talking points?

What truly is rationalizing, by fanbois and non fanbois alike, is wondering why Samsung didn't put forth the Galaxy Tab prior to the iPad? Instead of the rush job they have coming out now. And when I say rush job, I mean where Google itself said Android OS is not optimised for the tablet even at it's most latest rendition, 2.2 Froyo, which is not what is in this machine.

It appears the Galaxy Tab and Dell Streak just want to ride on the coat-tails of Apple's iPad success of their version of a "tablet" as a 'me-too' so called competitor. Apple took the risk and Samsung and Dell wants to hog the lime life with their so called tablet and reap the possible rewards of Apple's blood, sweat and tears. Really great idea.

Wow, has it been six months now?...

I think most people will be happy with just a front facing camera. Nobody b!tches about notebooks only having one camera. But I'm sure iPad 2 will have two just so people can do that FaceTime camera switching thingy like on the iPhone 4.

Apple will not make a video iPod. Nobody wants to watch video on an iPod.

Apple should not allow third parties to create native iPhone applications. Nobody cares about third party iPhone applications. Web apps are really SWEET.

Apple will not add GPS to the iPhone. Nobody cares about GPS on a phone.

Maybe someone will create an App of your best pics and simply animate and match to speech (like Max Headroom) if you don't want to talk live.

Or someone else's face and synthesized voice. How long before there's an app for that?

No, that's pretty much 99.99% Appl3 h8er speak. (See how I did that, I spelled it funny, ergo it's kewl.) Almost every time an Apple product is referred to as "sexy" it's by someone who troll's Apple fan sites complaning about people who appreciate Apple products. As in "you loosers only like the MacBook Air because it's 'sexy.'" To which most of the responses are along the lines of "although it is attractive, the main appeal to me is that it's lightweight and runs the OS I prefer and which allows me to be more productive."

I love AppleInsider and all, but honestly, this is being expected for the next iPad. If it doesn't have two cameras, even one camera, everyone would be surprised.

I wouldn't mind the article if the source confirmed the cameras. Because right now, it's just a rumor. But adding nothing much to the rumor that's going around right now is... poor publication?

Not to be mean, but, we already know the rumor. You guys are like trying to kill the flame with a fan.

One trick pony added to my ignore list.

As for the cameras, I use my iPad all the time and haven't once wanted a camera, front or back. Plus, i've got an iPhone in my pocket every second that i'm using the iPad. Given my experience with facetime on the iphone, it seems necessary to hold the phone much higher and more vertically oriented than people do normally. With a phone, this is uncomfortable but at least somewhat reasonable. With an iPad, not so much.

Facetime on an iPad will more like underside-of-chin-and-nose-hair-time.

With that said, if the cameras are cheap enough, they are a why-not feature. People think they want the cameras. So it probably makes business sense to add them even if they'll go unused. That is, if they're cheap enough to be a why-not feature.

That might be. Just saying, it isn't what the consensus seemed to be after the iPad was announced sans cameras. I could be mis-remembering.

Apple "plans" to make only 2.5 million units in the quarter:

This isn't surprising. If they release the new model part way through the quarter then they won't have an opportunity to sell 4 million + of them. The quarter will be split between new and old models.

Only the first item is actually a true statement that anyone at Apple has ever made, most of the rest of them you just made up or got from someone else who "heard it somewhere."

Steve Jobs is famous for saying the first one, the reversal on "non-Apple development tools" is debatable, and the rest are purest fantasy on your part.
post #65 of 145
Granted "a given," but these comments seem dismissive and downright harsh towards AI!

I think it's unrealistic to expect that every article has to be ground breaking. I personally enjoy the interaction these, say, secondary articles generate....I enjoy hearing positive comments about what Apple may or may not include in the next gen of their products.

I can get all the derisive, dismissive comments at home from my GF. I come here to AI to get "away" from that! I've got a bitchy GF, I don't really want to hear bitchy comments from guys, too! Just Say'n, guys.


Anyway...unlike Apple to produce a new iteration of anything without a plethora of new features...In addition to the cameras...most likely it will be thinner, lighter, with better battery power and at least one improvement that nobody but Jobs and his team of PHD's have thought about.

I would like to see the 30pin connector also on the side so you can position the keyboard/stand horizontally. Also, the cameras. I just used FaceTime on my iPhone 4 (Arizona) with my daughter on her MBP in St. Maarten. And it was so superior to skype. Especially when I switched to the front facing camera to show her what our stupid cat was doing! Brilliant! Err, not the cat (far from it), I mean Apple is "brilliant!"

Do I remember correctly?

It will be interesting to see where the camera is positioned. An iPhone or iPod touch is small & people don't really notice much difference when the phone is held vertical or horizontal. With something as big as an iPad it will be more obvious that they aren't staring straight into the camera. If Apple puts it so that it would be on top when held horizontally then when run full screen from iPad to Mac (or vice versa) everything would look great. I fear though that Jobs will put it on what would be top when held vertically because they wouldn't want your hand or other covering the camera when held vertically.

Personally I think they should move home button to the side so natural way to hold it is horizontal, most people hold it that way anyway except maybe when reading books.

On a separate note, I don't think you can call FaceTime an open standard until it's actually released as such, until then it remains proprietary to Apple.

Exactly. You are trying to be ironic but you are unintentionally right, they did all that, because they hadn't developed a feature such as facetime that would start making sense of two cameras. Unlike others apple doesn't just pile on hardware feature on top of the other just cause they can, they do it when it makes sense to, when the software is there to take advantage of these. So, lol, sorry, better luck next time on taking the piss.

Nominate these two for awards in terms of rubbish posts of the thread. "Apple will never make a tablet"...sure that's what every apple aficionado said, they weren't like every third month of every year since they cancelled the newton talking and alluding to rumors that they would make a tablet at any moment...
The only one actually mentioned by Steve jobs btw was about ipod video, so what? At that point he'd thought that wouldn't work. Unlike most every other ceo like the horrid Schmidt (and did you hear about his new one? when asked on cnn what people should do if they dislike google street view monitoring their properties he said "they should move", somebody put a lid on this guy...) or that cretin Ballmer, Jobs isn't embarrassing himself every other month or so with his predictions or opinions. So he was wrong on that one, who the hell cares? Everyone knows that we are wrong in tons of things in the course of our lives, so what if he missed the mark in one out of the thousands of issues he has touched upon in the tech world? I am sure this wasn't his only nor will it be his last mistake.

I've been trying one out for the last week and find it's just too heavy to hold for any reasonable length of time. Setting it down invariably causes the content to rotate. Steve's insistence on using the side switch for mute in iOS 4.2 has me convinced that he himself never uses an iPad.

Earlier this year my wife and I looked at getting an iPad as a couch companion, but chose to get a used MacBook instead. The MacBook cost less, does more and sits nicely on your lap with the screen at a good viewing angle.

For me to buy an iPad 2 it would have to be half the weight of the current one and that isn't going to happen without bending some of the laws of physics.

Funny. I'm finding that I'm barely using my iMac at all since getting the iPad. All I use the iMac for these days is ripping an occasional disc and synching my iDevices on a regular basis. If it weren't for the fact you need iTunes to sync/backup everything on your iDevices, I'd have little reason to have an iMac at all.

That would be why I used the word "want" instead of "need." I certainly didn't need an iPad when it was announced, but man oh man how I wanted one. Now that I've been using it since April, I'm finding how much more I prefer it to my iMac.

I'm just seeing what Apple can add to the iPad that would make me want to upgrade. Time will tell, but camera's aren't going to entice me.

It's funny because, at this point, Apple haters are largely talking to each other, breaking themselves up with their hilarious burlesques of poor, clueless, Jobs worshipping Apple people.

Go to pretty much Apple discussion, on an Apple centric site or otherwise, and you'll see the same pattern: a pretty lively debate about what features Apple ought to or should have included, the relative utility of those features, descriptions of machines that Apple must make right now or risk being Doomed™, expressions of incredulity that a new software release still doesn't address a long standing gripe, expressions of not having that gripe, etc.

And then there's those "But my master Jobs said it was all good so there can't be anything to discuss because Apple never does anything wrong and everything good is from Apple always" posts that stick out like a sore thumb. This thread being a case in point.

At this point I'm starting to suspect that a steady diet of Apple resentment leads to brain damage.

i think camera card slot would be a great addition but they need to make sure it works for professional photographers. my friend's nikon wouldn't sync with my ipad. i think an ipad would be a great professional photographer's sidekick if they could upload big camera files with ease.

also a retina display (or approaching RD resolution) wouldn't be a bad thing.

i would consider adding Infrared and an app so the ipad could work with any tv as a remote!

software tweaks recommendations:

1) the ability to create new photo folders on the fly.
2) gray out the app icons that require an internet connection when you're not on wifi or out of 3G range. if i'm away from wifi then 70% of my apps are temporarily just cluttter!

3) i would explore some UI tweeks where the user had the option to arrange some of the apps in stacks, wheels or spheres... rather the ios 4 app folders. i don't think that's the best UI solution for a 9.7 inch screen.

that's all for now steve.
