More clues in Apple’s iPad software developers kit hint at a camera of some sort, including video calling features.

MacRumors’ Arnold Kim tracks down the latest:

  • “We’ve been told that if you go digging into Apple’s private framework which controls the camera, the iPad SDK tests for 3 additional camera characteristics that are not found in the iPhone 3.x SDK.”
  • “It seems Apple built in API support to test to see if your iPad had a Front Facing Camera, Zoom and a Camera Flash. The front facing camera would, of course, be used for video chat, while Zoom and Camera Flash are often requested features for the iPhone’s camera.”
  • And 9 to 5 Mac has helped Kim or his sources find these icons which are clearly for video calls:

So will Apple reveal a camera as a last-second addition to the first iPad? Or will it be an iPad 2.0 thing?
