    Nice insight. But I also think if they don't upgrade the camera and they do double the resolution of the screen, people are going to be unhappy with FaceTime. It just won't look good with such a low resolution camera.

    Apple will have considered the variables, I expect. A lot of the same people who complain about camera quality now probably would complain if the cameras were upgraded and they suddenly found Skype, FaceTime, etc., unusable because their wifi or 3G connections were too slow to keep up.

    My point exactly. I use Skype and FaceTime for transAtlantic calls. The iPad cameras are fine for that, and the extra bandwidth required for hires video would probably affect the call quality adversely. There are times even now where I have to turn off the video because the network is too slow.

    Now if the camera was switchable between 8mp and 1mp...

    Yes, I was thinking that that might be a possibility, but I don't know how much cost diff there'd be and whether it would create other demands technically that would have to be factored into production and servicing.

    It'll be interesting to see what Apple delivers.

    What if... It does an auto adjust depending on your bandwidth. It will do a higher resolution with less compression if both parties are on a good connection, lower res with more compression on a slow connection. Espn 3 does it, why can't apple?

    That way we get upgraded cameras, folks with slow bandwidth can still have a smooth streaming video.
