Nope

I doubt it

There is no logitech driver preinstalled on the OS, let alone a generic USB webcam driver

They won't want an iPad if they want to video chat. Maybe the next model though.

"No true USB port which means no drivers for external use so no...."


actually there is with the camera kit, this may be a possibility for the jailbreak community.

That's right.

I even heard some say with the camera connection kit they have been able to use a USB keyboard. I would love to use a USB game controller on the iPad. :)

And, actually, the Logitech Webcam does not require a driver - at least not on a PC. While Skype doesn't currently have video on i devices (hello Fring) I have to believe it will as it works on a PC.
