    Yeah, I don't need to snap pics with ye olde tablet. I have a feeling a number of insurance replacements are due to dropping during such situations.

    That actually makes a lot of sense to me. I can definitely see it being awkward trying to hold onto while taking a pic and just dropping it.

    are tablet cameras any better than phone? Given the thickness of them (or lack of), I would imagine they're not. (assuming that's the case) I don't see the point either, just seems like a useless addition that will cost more

    A camera on a phone can always be useful.

    I've got a 2 1/2 year old and I'm constantly snapping pictures/videos of him, if I didn't have a phone camera with me at all times I would miss a lot of moments.

    Not to mention things like video chatting with relatives around the world any time you like.

    Tons of uses and reasons to have a camera on your phone.

    Because a back camera on a tablet are about as useful as nipples on a breast plate?
