iOS 4.1 beta 3 supports FaceTime via e-mail contacts

updated 05:40 pm EDT, Fri August 6, 2010

FaceTime support for iPad and iPod touch?

Developers have uncovered a new FaceTime feature in the third iOS 4 beta, which may hint at support for video calling with non-phone devices such as the iPad and iPod touch. The latest beta provides a new option in the Contacts dialog for calling users based on an e-mail address instead of a phone number.

Recent images from an alleged component for the next-generation iPod touch suggest the device may integrate a front-facing camera. The authenticity of the images has not been confirmed, however Apple is generally expected to add FaceTime support to the Touch sometime in the future.

Apple has yet to publicly disclose any plans to add FaceTime to the iPad or iPod touch. [via MacRumors]

    umm

    This means nothing. Since facetime doesn't even use the phone network, why wouldn't being able to connect via email or some other method (iChat, for example) be included?
