New iPad With A Camera

I’ve heard there may be a new iPad coming out with a camera.  Really, this comes as no surprise to me, as I was amazed the iPad didn’t have one to begin with.

Why wouldn’t it have a camera?  Seems like such an obvious feature.  Why on earth did Apple leave it out in the first place?

No word on when this might happen.  If I had to guess, I’d say end of the year, or possibly even early to mid 2011.  The iPad is still fairly new, so I wouldn’t expect a new version yet.

On the other hand, could be Apple planned to release another model to the iPad line all along.  Maybe the iPad model that has a camera is to be the top of the line iPad.  Maybe it’ll have a few other new features we don’t know about.
