I'm sure the execs at MS read these posts and will demand their engineers put a good camera in the SP4. One good reason for a good camera is so it can serve as a decent scanner.
Ha, I'm sure that's sarcasm. I'm also sure there were a bunch of managers in a conference room making the decision to keep the cost of producing the SP3 down by choosing the cheapest camera they could and convincing themselves it was good enough for Skype and let's just go with that. Now move on to the next thing on the agenda. I've been in too many meetings just like that where I work. But yeah the fact that you can't even email a photo of a document really sucks. That's my primary use case for the camera.
