So I'm surfing the forums on my new iPad and was just thinking. If there is no camera on this thing, why is there a mic?

The iPad doesn't even come with a voice recording app. My first thought that there could be possible voice conferencing apps soon to come? Like an iPad Skype? That'd be cool, share y'alls thoughts

I am thinking you can buy one and there is a vonage app for the Iphone and Ipod touch that you should be able to use on it.

I think you can download the voicememo app from the app store. Other than that I am drawing a blank...

My kids use it to blow out the Zippo Lighter app. There is also a birthday cake app.
