Possible Camera Add-On?
I know Apple has the USB/SD Card readers you can buy for the iPad for digital cameras. Does anyone think they could release such a thing but with a camera instead? I think it would be cool to at least have a way to skype or something for now until a G2 comes out next year.

If you are looking to use it for Skype, that developer will have to come up with the camera attachment in addition to the app since the dock connector camera would have to be activated by that specific app.
Therefore, chances you'll see this is low.

Never say never.
The accessory option (as far as I know) has only been implemented by TomTom with their car kit / cradle, but at the same time the App can be used without it.
Maybe a universal camera can be created, that ANY App can have access to.
Likely if that happens Apple will introduce on on the next gen iPad :-)

Well I have always thought that someone (3rd party) should have made a slider keyboard attachment for the iPhone to curb all of the need for a physical keyboard, but noone has ever done it, so I don't know why this would be any different. My guess is you won't see one until apple decides to do it.

this is one accessory that i am hoping for. chancea re the 2nd gen will have this, as im sure apple took notice of the complaints with the first one. then itll suck for all us early adopters if theres no attachment.
theyre already seeing signs of ichat with video in the code for os 4.0!!

Jobs and company will get around to putting a camera on their ipad when they feel like it. They work on "Apple" time....which is slower than most of us would like.
