LAS VEGAS — iPhone and iPad accessory maker iLuv is showing off its case lineup at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, including new cases designed just for Apple’s unannounced second generation iPad. The leather cases include cut-outs for a rear facing camera, adding fuel to the rumors that the next iPad will include front and rear-facing digital cameras.

Company representatives were confident their new cases accurately reflect what Apple has in store for the next version of its multimedia tablet. “Information in China isn’t as secret” as Apple would like, according to an iLuv representative that spoke with The Mac Observer.

Rumors have been circulating for some time that Apple plans to add at least a front-facing camera to the iPad with FaceTime video chat support, and many rumors claim the tablet will get a rear-facing camera, too, just like the latest iPod touch model.

Rear-facing iPad 2 Camera? iLuv’s designs say yes.

iLuv didn’t claim to have any information about when Apple will introduce its second generation iPad. The original model was introduced in April 2010, it seems likely the next version will show up in early spring.
