Hi, Can you just say something abt the screen resolution, I think it is 800X480, how a 12mp cam will shoot and play in this resolution
I think it will be 1.2 MP camera not 12MP camera. 12MP camera is not possible for this cost. Also this tablet uses ARM V7 processor and 12MP is not possible using this processor. 12MP camera will be available only in Snapdragon, intel and Cortex processor.
