With such a low resolution front and rear camera whats to like about this thing. The only people that will buy this is people without a clue. People who like HP and have no tech knowledge about product specification regarding this and competitive products. Once the consumer finds that HP is selling cheap junk they will stop buying just like they do when they buy their desktop units TOO BAD SINCE THEY HAVE A NICE BRAND NAME BUT GREEDY CEO'S TOOK THEM DOWN FOR THE ALL MIGHTY BONUS! Anyone that offers the this offer the Nexus 7 really hates their customers , and really loves HP.
