FaceTime for iPad is rumored to officially arrive with the second generation version of Apple’s tablet. But, tech savvy iPad owners can enable FaceTime on their jailbroken device now, via a new hack.
As you can see in the video below, the hack appears to work pretty well. However, the installation process (which you can take a look at here) does seem to be rather dense.
Once enabled, the hack will allow iPad owners to participate in FaceTime calls over Wi-Fi, as required by Apple. Obviously, iPad to iPad FaceTime calls will only involve audio (as the first gen tablet doesn’t feature a camera). However, when calling an iPhone or iPod touch, iPad owners will be able to experience both video and audio.
If you can’t wait a couple of months for the second generation iPad, take a look at the instructions and try out FaceTime for iPad yourself. Personally, I’m quite content to confine FaceTime to my iPhone 4 – for now.
