We’ve all speculated it before. Various times. Back when the iPad was announced in January, Cult of Mac noticed what could have been a front facing camera embedded in the iPad Steve Jobs held during the keynote.

Another discovery came from Apple’s documentation itself which uncovered API support for camera functions like zoom and flash.
You might be familiar with Pano, an iPhone/ iPod touch app that lets you take panoramic photos from your iDevices. A recent app upgrade came with the following text:
