RE: Why do tablets have rear facing cameras?
10/22/2013 4:59:08 PM
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.
