Facetime for iPad 2
-FaceTime is the best and easiest way to videoconference.
We supported it on the iPhone and we supported it on the iPod Touch.
And now, we're bringing it to the iPad.
You can FaceTime between two iPads, between an iPad and an iPhone or an iPod Touch, and between an iPad and a Mac.
Let me go ahead and just give you a demo.
So, it's calling him.
In a second, he'll answer.
Hey, Michael, how are you doing?
-Doing great, Scott.
How's it going?
-Ah, it's going great.
I'm just giving everyone here a demo of FaceTime.
You can see already that the size of the iPad is just ideal for videoconferencing.
I mean, the person's face is a great size.
You can see all their expressions.
It feels very personal.
You can also use both the front camera and the rear camera.
So, Michael, why don't you flip to the rear camera and show us what you're looking at?
-Sure thing, Scott.
-Okay, Michael's been locked in a--
-[unk] over here.
-a very sad cafe.
I'm so sorry.
-Now, you can imagine, you know, if-- if Michael had children or something, this would be fun to look at.
-I told-- I told him to bring a-- a box of puppies, but I guess he didn't.
Anyway, you could also move the-- the PIP around to
get it out of the away, so it's sort of Pong.
You can move it wherever you want.
But FaceTime on this, really, is a great experience and we can't wait for people to get their hands on it and, of course, from day 1, you can FaceTime from your iPad 2 with all of the iPhone 4 customers out there.
Thanks a lot, Michael.
