BoyGeniusReport brings us the story that Apple is brining FaceTime to the iPod touch and iPad, and they gives us the details how.
It‚Äôs assumed Apple bring the service to more if not all it's mobile devices, no one has been sure how, after all, there are no phone numbers to call on an iPod touch or iPad. Well, not entirely true AT&T does assign the iPad 3G a number with its data service, but still‚Ä¶
Here is how FaceTime will work on non-iPhone devices:
It's through your Apple ID. The ID will be registered with your 'magical' device ( devices) this will allow other Apple devices to start a FaceTime call using your email address.
Apple will reportedly make use of push notifications to deliver these incoming FaceTime connection requests. It's reported that there is a push notification detector tied into the FaceTime frameworks in the new iPhone OS 4.1 beta.
Obviously the iPad in question must be some future version with a camera. There's not much sense in having FaceTime on the current model.
More details to come, we're sure.
