Four new image files found within the first iOS 4.3 beta support the idea that the iPad 2 will have at least one camera capable of both still photo and video capture, while also suggesting that the second-generation device’s screen will sport the same resolution as its predecessor’s. 9 to 5 Mac reports that two images depicting the same shutter screen as found on iPhone and iPod touch—in landscape and portrait orientation—have been found; the new images are labeled as being for the iPad, and not for any other product. Two additional images are used to indicate an empty still photo or video camera roll, and are likewise labeled for iPad. Notably, the camera shutter images are 1024×768 in size, suggesting that Apple plans to keep the same screen resolution in the second-generation iPad as it used in the first.
