    Was watching Letterman show off the Ipad and LOOK!!![​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Watch the video starting at about 49 seconds and there is a great close up, it looks like light bounces off a camera lens from behind the bezel.

    Its dead center and is about the same size as the macbook camera.

    here is video, make sure to watch in HD.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O4v76sEkX3g

    Iphone sensor isnt dead center.

    Plus I have watched all the reviews and never seen it before.

    Seriously...? How many threads do we have to start about this? The iPad does NOT have a camera. Launch is TOMORROW. If there were a camera, we would know by now. Let it go.

    Nothing to see here. Many of the best tech journalists in the country have now had more than a week with an iPad in their possession. If it had a camera, everyone would know.

    Really?!? It's not there! There have been many reviews and no one has mentioned this revelation. I too wanted a camera but am ok with this first iteration. Just accept this is the first version and it'll continue to get better and better.

    BREAKING NEWS: iPad includes suspiciously placed dust speck on surface.

    Apple was unavailable for comment. Their silence almost a confirmation of the surprising facts which were uncovered by a crack team of Internet nerds with way too much time on their iPad-less hands.

    Its dead center, exactly where these pictures show
    [​IMG]

    The ipads given to the reviewers were specific models given directly from Apple.

    Just saying there is a chance.

    So, you didn't want to start a camera rumor and did anyway?

    Maybe I am crazy

    The facts are these:

    1. Letterman borrowed a review unit
    2. Those who were provided review units are tech-savvy members of the press
    3. The same member of the press who are not stupid AND would jump at the chance to break the "surprise iPad camera" story.

    It is a dust speck.

    there is CLEARLY something behind the black bezel dead, center.

    It's the ambient light sensor. That would be my best guess. Dozens of iPads have been in the hands of the technical press for over a week. Someone would have spilled the beans by now - right?

    4 other specks light up at the same time, and disappear the same. So it's pretty likely the 5th one (your camera) is just another speck.

    Ok, so at least you see it, that is all i wanted to accomplish.

    All i know is all videos on the ipad have been really crappy, web cam quality videos, and this is the first time in HD.

    It is not a speck of dust that is for sure.

    You're all wrong. It's a particle-beam weapon, to use against the next person who says, "but it doesn't have Flash."
