Intell of Macrumors has successfully ported the iPod touch 4′s to Apple iPad. It’s working pretty fine but needs a long process to work. Once you have done you’ll be able to FaceTime with your friends having iPhone 4, iPod touch 4G or Mac. As there isn’t any camera on iPad so your friends will only see a black screen, but they will be able to hear you. So if you are ready for the adventure follow the steps below to get FaceTime on your iPad.

I hope a Cydia tweak for this hack will be made available soon. We will update you as it happens.
