In the today’s entry in the parlour-game of iPad-charades, where bloggers take increasingly wild guesses at what is and isn’t going to be included in the fabled iPad 2, CNET is reporting the tablet will definitely sport a front-facing camera.

Developers tooling around with the latest iOS 4.3 beta have found icons entitled ‘Facetime,’ ‘Camera’ and ‘PhotoBooth,’ all of which would presumably require a camera on the front of the iPad.

The inclusion of a front-facing camera would be a no-brainer for a second-generation iPad, particularly considering its absence from the original was a such a sore point on its release. No doubt, the ability to use video-conferencing apps like Skype or Apple’s own FaceTime on the iPad’s screen would be a real winner.
