Nexus 7 receives a working camera application

Nexus 7 may have it flaws, but another flaw which hasn’t really been brought to attention is the lack of a camera application. We know what you’re thinking, that’s pretty weird, right? But the lack of camera was probably done to ensure the Nexus 7 shipped a little earlier, plus the Nexus 7 source is out, indicating that the camera app can quickly become compiled.

Understanding this theory, MoDaCo has uploaded a working stock Jelly Bean camera application on the Play Store to use, which should completely fix any camera needs that you may have. This will likely change in the next Android Jelly Bean revision which will likely contain a stock camera application. However, if you need a working camera urgently, simply click the source link.

So they've pulled off an HP TouchPad.
Yep, exactly what I was thinking. I honestly don't see the point, it's not a great camera for taking pictures, but it's good enough for Skype. I at least have my phone on me at all times, so I'd rather use that for taking pictures.

wait? They couldn't be bothered to compile an camera app? Were they so scared of the competition they had to rush it.

Mind you they did do that with the Xoom and the SD card slot.

The only camera is front facing, so unless you just really like taking pictures of yourself I wouldn't see the point.

Ah my bad, makes a hell of a lot more sense now
