Last year it was expected that Apple would release a new iPod touch with camera, but they did not. It triggered a lot of controversy as evidence appeared later that the new iPod touch had been prepared internally for a camera module. Now the Apple iPad is about to launch and again Apple did not include a camera in the iPad.
9 to 5 Mac reported yesterday about some findings in the iPhone 3.2 SDK that point towards video chat support.

Conspiracy theories aside, but I really think Apple is all along planning to release video camera equipped iPod touch and iPad devices later this year. If you have early adopted the new faster iPod touch, you will own a device that will look old. If you get in on the first iPad wave, you will be jealous at iPad owners that bought theirs in fall 2010, because they have a video camera inside their iPad.
Many of you will be selling their first generation iPad on eBay and pay Apple again for a new iPad that most likely will have nothing else new besides the camera - smart product release strategy on Apple's side. If other mobile phones would not have cameras by default, I guess the iPhone would still not have one.
