It will be low to mid end with a high end processor. It's hard to make a quality device with cameras and a beastly screen without charging an arm and a leg for it. All I want from this is a 1.3 MP front facing camera for video chatting and a microSD slot.

cameras only cost a few bux. they just charge for it.
Im quite happy with a camera free tablet though. Does anyone ACTUALLY use theirs? I think I've used mine like twice.

I actually do a lot of video calling with my webcam and front-facing cams, so I want a tablet that has a camera but don't want to overpay for it. Preferably, I would like a Tegra 3 tablet to play Shadowgun and Sonic 4 on, but I'm not digging the TF300's size (I like the compact, book-like 7-inchers).

Back Cam on a tablet is close to useless. Front one is good for video calls though, and VGA should be sufficient.

My thoughts exactly. I think you look silly taking pictures on a tablet, but video chatting is essential for me.

Great reasons to save my pennies. Get rid of the rear facing camera we're in business.

Why on earth would you want to REMOVE a feature?

Really? Taking pictures on a tablet? I can understand front facing for video chat but why on Earth would you be willing to take pictures using a tablet?
The cost to build will definitely be lower and will definitely justify the $199 price. Besides, most of them are underperforming to begin with.

Why on earth wouldn't you want to remove an unnecessary feature that add very little?

Thank you…. Someone who understands that Tablets Should Not Have A Rear Facing Camera. I compare it to having a camera on your vacuum cleaner… what is the point?

Camera on a vacuum cleaner would be nice. They would add $50 to the price. :p

I think it will have only 512mb ram, and modified Terga-3 version with slower CPU and GPU
