Ben Brooks on the iPad 2 rear facing camera rumour

Perhaps I am the only one, but what the hell good is a rear facing camera on a device that weighs 1.5lbs and is the size of a sheet of paper?

"What the frack would I use it for?". That was my first reaction when someone at work mentioned the idea. "To take video and pictures!", was the answer. "As opposed to the compact camera or phone I have in my pocket?!!", was my retort.
