Is a bigger FaceTime camera coming to the Apple iPad 4

Is a bigger FaceTime camera coming to the Apple iPad 4

It seems strange to be talking about the Apple iPad 4 when tomorrow the Apple iPad mini will be introduced, but a site called Apple.pro was able to obtain a picture of what is allegedly the front screen of the next full-sized Apple tablet. According to the source of the picture, the Apple iPad 4 screen uses optical bonding which is a process that glues glass in front of a display to improve its readability in areas with high humidity. It also reduces glare and allows the screen to be thinner. It is a process that is also being used on the screen of the Microsoft Surface tablet.

In addition, the picture of the screen shows a larger cutout for the FaceTime camera. That could mean that Apple plans on bringing a larger camera sensor to its next 9.7 inch tablet.The front-facing camera on the third iteration of the Apple iPad is .3MP. On the Apple iPhone 5 and 5th gen Apple iPod touch, the FaceTime shooter is 1.2MP would gives us a clue of were Apple may go with the feature in the iPad 4.

The tablet wars are just beginning to heat up. You have Apple competing in the low price 7 inch category with the Amazon Kindle Fire HD and the Google Nexus 7. You have Microsoft competing in the full size space with the 9.7 inch Apple iPad. What will be next?

Actually, it is a red herring used by Apple to find the source of a leak. Someone is going to be out of work soon....

Leaks are coming in early, looks like Tim Cook isn't doing a good job in preventing these things from happening. We even might see what the iPad 4 might look like sometime around this year if this keeps on going.
