There are also new tips that make note of video chatting capabilities. These features are embedded in the SDK's telephone software. The Wi-Fi version of the iPad does not include a cellular modem, but the 3G version will. Would video chatting be limited to models with 3G on board? Video chatting would more or less require a user-facing camera. Neither the iPhone nor iPad has one.
Why would Apple include such software if no user-facing camera is built into the device? Is Apple going to surprise everyone with an embedded camera when the iPad launches? Is it preparing a way for the iPad and iPhone to interact and make use of one another's hardware? We simply don't know yet.
The last significant finding in the new SDK is a tool that will help developers create an application and easily port it to all three platforms (iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch). This will save developers time and reduce the time-to-market for creating applications for all three devices.
Apple has not explained why the SDK was pulled, nor has it said when it will become available again.
