Tons and tons of sites have made a point of listing all the features missing from the iPad. Among them was a forward facing camera. With no camera present at all, many tech fans wondered what Apple was thinking not including either a forward facing camera or a more traditionally located camera on the back of the device.
It seems that in leaving the camera out, Apple was just being Apple. That is, the company left it out of the first device because they'll likely include the camera in an updated model in the future.
Mission Repair recently received a box of iPad parts and notice that the metal, internal frames had a space that looked suspiciously camera-sized. The lads grabbed a standard webcam from a Unibody MacBook and lo and behold, it fit into the mysterious space in the frame like a hand in a glove.
