Apple tablet to have 3G and web cam
The signs keep coming that Apple is about to offer up a tablet with many features. According to French Telecom's Stephane Richard, the number 2 exec at the carrier, the Cupertino based firm is on the cusp of releasing a tablet that will run over 3G and feature a web cam. Richard wasn't exactly talkative, simply uttering "Oui" to a series of questions about an Apple tablet, 3G and a webcam. Captured on a video camera in French, the exchange goes like this in translation, Reporter: According to weekly Le Point, in a couple of days Apple will be launching its tablet computer...Richard: Yes, Reporter: ...equipped with a webcam. Richard: Yes, Reporter: Are Orange customers going to be able to enjoy it? Richard: Of course! With a conversation like this, Richard might have even answered in the affirmitive that the device makes coffee and vacuums the rug. Orange, of course, previously had an exlcusive agreement to sell the iPhone in France, but that nation's competition counsel ruled that such an agreement was illegal. Back home, we are closing in on the January 27th date when Apple is expected to introduce the mythical tablet to the public.  It appears that none other than Steve Jobs has been enlisted for the festivities that is to take place in San Francisco later this month.

i think that if this is true and this tablet makes its way to america i think the american version would not have a webcam, because we dont have video calling in america. in france they do have video calling so it makes sense to put a webcam on their tablet. i mean if the american version did have a webcam it would suck cause most likely u would have to use it over wifi in order to make a video call and that would suck cause in alot of places u have to pay to use the wifi . cause our crappy 3G networks dont support video calling like the networks in europe...

AT&T has video calling, just no one uses it. But your comment about the crappy 3g GSM network coverage is correct, and the bit-rate is slower than in Europe. 7.2 vs 14.4mb makes a huge difference. When LTE takes off globally and VZW, AT&T, and T-Mobile all have the same 3g Network it will be easier to standardize that type of experience.
