As the title suggests. So, no augmented reality then or Google goggles? Seems a shame to have less capabilities than my nexus 1.
I think you’ve hit upon a good reason why we might want it in there. A rear camera isn’t just for taking pics and some innovative apps are making use of this functionality.
I strongly believe that later revisions (the 2g Nexus 7? Nexus 7 II?) will include a camera, I don’t see why we won’t see iPad style iteration as they find ways of adding these in for the right price.
In fact I seem to remember people have discovered that a number of expected features have been designed for when they’ve opened up their tablets, ie there is a space for a camera, sim card etc?
For me though, my phone has an OK camera (my next one will have a great camera) and it goes with me everywhere. The tablet has a slightly different role in my life – so it’s not something I miss. And you never know, my ‘proper’ camera might be Android powered soon…!
