The first generation iPad isn't even in the hands of consumers yet and already there's speculation about what Apple may be planning for future iPads. Where did the speculation come from? Well, Apple itself is to blame for this one. The company has posted a job opening for a "Performance QA Engineer, iPad Media" with a job description that includes the following:
The Media Systems team is looking for a software quality engineer with a strong technical background to test still, video and audio capture and playback frameworks.
While most companies earn headlines based on what their employees produce, Apple routinely gets attention for simply posting a job opening. This is nothing new. But, in this case, the prospect of the iPad receiving digital video and still photography capabilities is music to the ears of many currently disappointed that the iPad is lacking such amenities in models presently unveiled.
The job is up for grabs and the qualifications are posted. Check it out... and maybe you'll be the guy or gal who gets to outfit the iPad with some cool new features
