Same tech as the iPhone 4 camera...
THATS whats up.
Imagine a retina display with 16MP photos on the Apple A5 processor running at 1.5 GHZ with 1GIG of memory and 64 gigs of storage...
The phone would be damn near perfection!
I mean, besides the whole messaging notifications annoying the hell out of you that is.
Just in time
Jeez, I bought a 7MP camera for $100...two years later it is being more than doubled by a damn phone...smh...
