Report: Apple Ordering Lens Modules for iPad 2



Only Apple knows what new hardware features the iPad 2 will boast when it comes out in April 2011, but one thing everyone can agree on is that it will have FaceTime support by way of at least one camera module.

Now Digitimes is claiming that they know who is going to provide the lens modules for the iPad 2, and no shocks here: they say it’s Largan Precision, who also apparently supply the 5-megapixel lens module in the iPhone 4.

This fleshes out an earlier report that Omnivision would be providing the actual camera sensors, as well as another Digitimes report on the iPad 2 from last week, which rather improbably claimed the iPad 2 would have a USB port and a Retina Display… neither of which are likely.
