    The iPad 2 seems to lack resolution adjustment. Could there be a supporting software application for that?

    The front camera of the iPad2 is VGA - 640x480 - and is designed for video conferencing. The rear camera is a 1 megapixel camera designed for HD video. Neither camera was designed for taking still pictures and, although the iPad can take stills, they are of poor resolution. There is no way of overcoming this - it's a hardware issue that cannot be addressed by software. Apple never thought that people would want to take still pictures with their iPad.

    I am sorry you are having network problems from your service provider. Are these 3G problems via the cellular network, or WiFi problems via a broadband modem?

    Tim! The problems are commonly with the 3G service providers.

    Cameras

    I think it's worth bearing in mind that using an Ipad for still photography is not the most ergononomically friendly soloution. In these day's of hand held HD still and video cameras, holding an ipad for still shots makes little if any sense.

    I have a JVC hand held HD video and stills device. On a stand it makes sense, even my bridge camera (Fuji) is designed perfectly for the purpose. Add to that a Samsung 8 mega pixel compact, and that covers photography for me.

    The FaceTime camera is good, but you need enough light to show it off at it's best.

    Apple never intended to compete in the camera market with the ipad.

    But if I may argue, we are in the 21stcc living within time and space. The essence of all in one modern day technology is to reduce excess baggage in the time of journey and as well control the issue of global warming as there may be a greater opportunity for global decongestion. One iPad and or it's equivalent can handle everything ranging from transaction, media, medical, organizers and all sort of provision by the digital age.

    In some ways, the iPhone4 tries to be that universal device, but its screen - although high resolution - is too small for many people for comfortable viewing. Hence the iPad - a larger screen device that's been optimised for media consumption - but not for taking photographs, I suspect.
