New Apple iPad with front-facing camera spotted during News Corp event?

Yesterday, News Corp launched The Daily, presented as “the industry’s first national daily news publication created from the ground up for iPad.” While this may not be such a big piece of news for Apple fans, what happened there without being announced most probably is.

According to Reuters, “what appeared to be a working model of the next iPad with a front-facing camera” was shown by Apple at the News Corp press conference.

Both Apple and News Corp obviously declined to confirm the existence of a next-generation iPad – but we already know that this is likely in production, and it could start shipping this month.

Unfortunately, no one has managed to snap any photos of the alleged new iPad (the one seen below is just the current model).

Other novelties that the new iPad should bring (except for the front-facing camera) include a retina display, rear camera, and 3-axys gyroscope. The new iPad may also have a CDMA version for Verizon – which, by the way, now takes pre-orders for its iPhone.
