9to5mac reports some pretty interesting news discovered in SDK 3.2 showing some strong evidence towards potential video chat and calling capability on future iPhones and iPads. The clues come by way of icon descriptions and VideoChat strings as shown below in pictures from 9to5mac. This would obviously indicate a front facing camera in the device(s) as well. However, what does this mean for the upcoming release of the iPad? As far as we know there is not even going to be a camera in the first release of the iPad. Will lack of a camera and video capabilities, especially in light of these new findings, discourage you from buying an iPad upon its release?
“These icons were found in the 3.2 SDK which seem to indicate that there will be video calling on a future iPxxx device.”
“hidden in some of the underlying iPad telephony apps are some VideoChat strings that are equally, if not more, telling evidence of future VideoChatting capabilities.”
