Why do tablets have rear facing cameras?

Who takes pics with a tablet? Put the higher quality camera on the front, where it is useful. Give us a nicer cam for video conferencing and drop the rear cam completely.

I mostly agree, although one use case for tablet cameras could be for "scanning" documents.
However, you don't need a good camera for that. Rear facing cameras have become a checkmark on spec sheets for some unknown reason, despite the fact that almost nobody uses them.
