Yesterday, after testing some apps with the iPad simulator, we got some interesting results that let us believe the iPad had a cam but it was pulled out at the last minute just like the iPod Touch 3G , last year. Before that, while playing with the iPad simulator included in the new iPhone SDK 3.2 , we discovered that even though the iPad lacks a cam, the interface was letting you trigger the cam which could mean, that there is a glitch in the SDK being just a beta, or it is the iTouch 3G episode all over again.
Based on the pic above, it seems that the iPad was originally planed with a iSight-ish cam. As you can see the structure is similar to the MacBook, but even this can’t actually prove nothing. This is just a speculation ( too many already ), and we can only hope that v2.0 will include a cam, and by the time v2.0 will be out, 3rd party cams will be released.
