Chipworks provides confirmation OmniVision (OVTI +2.1%) image sensors are used for both the new iPad's front and rear cameras - shares had already risen on expectations this would be the case. The 5MP OV5650 sensor, already used in the iPhone 4, powers the rear camera, while the 0.3MP OV297AA sensor, found in the iPod Nano and iPad 2, powers the front camera.
