    I have an iPad 2 and have noticed the same problem on the 3 when using someone else's. When you have a FaceTime conversation you are forced to tilt the iPad to an unnatural angle to get your face in the middle of the screen for the other user. The camera very clearly faces directly out from the iPad, which works fine for the iPhone and iPod touch because their small size means you're looking only 2 inches away from the lens, but for the iPad you're looking 5ish inches away from the lens. It makes for a really distracted experience. Anyone else notice the same thing?

    Yes but I wonder how they would possibly tilt it a bit to make it better.

    I can't think it would be that difficult. For a company that loves toting that everything "just works" and focuses so much on the customer experience, it makes me wonder if they ever used an iPad for a FaceTime conversation.
