Engadget on the Apple iPad

There’s no camera for video chatting.


Thanks to Apple’s decision to hamstring it in the software department, it’s missing key elements that steered my interest away: … a front-facing camera.


Where is video chat?


Touché, Mr. Jobs, but it’s also easy to argue that a $399 netbook can do a number of things better than the $499 Apple iPad — like multitask, play Flash video and make a video call.


I know, you are underwhelmed, but when was video chat anything more then a gimmick? It is great to do, but IM or a phone call is a far better solution in corporate/personal communication in my book.
