I think we can all admit that the iPad’s camera, while welcome, is pretty much just bad. I took issue with the iPod touch’s camera, wondering where Apple can even find such a low-resolution sensor these days, but Jack Deneut at Nelso makes the interesting observation that on the iPad 2, it produces a dubious honor: it appears to be the first camera with a lower resolution than the display it’s attached to.
