Just a quick question... And sorry if its already been mentioned...

Im actually really pissed off that apple couldnt squeeze a semi decent camera into the front as seriously who gives a **** about the rear camera? Since having my iPad 2 ive not once used the rear camera...

I think the iPad would be a great skype/facetime device, easily have group conversatations and would look great on that screen!

Do you think it would possible, not that im saying i would, but would it be possible to actually change the camera, if you wanted to?

No for so many reasons. Size, space , software support, electrical.

I've been reading this opinion all over the place - "Why did they make the rear camera better instead of the front camera? Facetime and Skype needs an awesome camera!" I have to wonder, are all of you people beautiful? You really think you look THAT good, so much so that other people viewing your face in video chat has to see your face in extreme-detail HD?
