While I definitly wouln't plan on using the camera for my serious picture taking, I can see several compeling uses, some of them very nice answers to problems presented in this forum.
Want those conference handouts on you iPad. Picture it, pdf it, annotate it. And eventually, maybe even OCR it. Dare I venture FAX it, for those old school companies.
Book, CD, or DVD library. Scan the bar code for quick entry.
Inventory, a picture of the item would be nice, or maybe even the shelf you stuffed it on.
Video notes would be a terrific addtion to EverNote, don't you think? And if they don't do it, someone else will. And iMovie would be a pretty good way to clean them up for addtion to a presentation later. I wonder if you could export the iMovie to iTunes and then add it to a Keynote presentation?
While Garage Band is mostly for musicians, I wonder what you could do with the abiltiy to import, splice, and multitrack audio notes?
Ok, enough. My imagination is running wild. I knew I'd get it if it had the two things I wanted, a camera and a significant speed bump, but I didn't think they could get me excited again. It's mostly the potential for the apps that has me spinning. Guess I'm just easy. :D
