With yesterday’s huge Back to Mac Apple Event, Steve Jobs introduced on stage something many users have been craving for: FaceTime on Mac. That’s right, the ability to call FaceTime enabled iOS devices from your Mac and vice versa has opened up a whole new can of worms.
Previously, it was difficult for some people to test FaceTime since the adoption rate of iPhone 4 and iPod touch fourth gen units were quite “slow”. Now, that has all changed as anyone with a Mac running Snow Leopard can FaceTime with an iOS device running 4.1.
When Will FaceTime Come to the iPad?
We saw the announcement of the refreshed MacBook Air, which Steve Jobs called a blend of the MacBook and an iPad. With the iPad refresh slated for next Spring, will we see FaceTime come to the iPad?
Many have questioned why bother to have a front or back facing camera on the iPad. Having a camera on the back might be useless, but one on the front now seems like it’s a guarantee. With the introduction of FaceTime for Mac yesterday, it is inevitable that FaceTime will be coming to the iPad. It would make perfect sense for Apple to implement this to tie the iPad into the whole new FaceTime-enabled ecosystem.
What do you think? Is FaceTime inevitable for the iPad?
