Apple job posting hints at video option for iPads

It’s crazy how the slightest little hint of something starts all the rampant speculation about Apple’s product development. This is the third clue that the next generation of iPad will have a camera, if not video capability. It certainly explains the stuff that was found in the SDK.

So add it up: first you have support for video conferencing in the SDK. Add the fact that the leaked picture of the bezel shows a socket for a camera. Add to that, a job posting that recently appeared, looking for “a software quality engineer with a strong technical background to test still, video and audio capture and playback frameworks.” This all looks to add up to the inevitable fact that the next gen of iPad will have video capabilities. Makes you want to run right out and buy a first gen version, doesn’t it? Oh well. Apple will still sell a ridiculous number of the things.
