According to a report in Barron’s, digital sensor developer OmniVision Technologies will be supplying CMOS image sensors for the next-generation iPad, expected to launch in the first quarter of 2011. Citing a brief research note from investment firm Detweller Fenton, the report suggests that the new iPad will ship with both a rear-facing 5 MP and front-facing VGA camera and is expected to support FaceTime video calling. Detweller indicates that it expects that Apple will build 2.5 million second-generation iPad units in the first quarter. OmniVision also currently produces the CMOS sensors for the iPhone 4, and the Detweller note expects that with the release of the second-generation iPad and Verizon iPhone, Apple will account for nearly a third of OmniVision’s overall chip demand.
