Device-makers normally save their best cameras for smartphones, assuming (rightly so) that most people rarely use a tablet’s rear-facing camera for pictures or video recording. To buck that trend, look no further than the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF7000. The Android tablet has a rear-facing 8-megapixel camera with a flash; one CNET review says it’s “the best rear camera on an Android tablet.”
Apple’s fourth-generation iPad, by comparison, has a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera without flash. Front-facing tablet cameras are probably used more often but are typically lower quality—you’d think tablet makers would reverse the two. Among front-facing tablet cameras, the Asus tablet takes 2-megapixel pictures, more than most other tablets.
Price: $499 and up from various online vendors; more information from Asus.
