Camera may be silly but at times practical/needed. Not so sure about the bigger battery either: if my Jolla serves as reference, the runtime is great (well, let's say: better than my former phones). And a bigger battery would also raise the weight. - In summary, I think it's good as is.

I personally don't see any need in the back camera on a tablet. Even worse - it freaks people out when you hold your tablet semi-vertically like a book and read something on screen (for example in a crowded train) - people who stand in front of you think you are spying on them. So if it frees space for more features - all the better.

Put one of the jolla stickers on the lens and they won't freak out anymore ;)

@Anna: Yeah, good idea :) But I really don't find such camera useful. What's next, people making photos with back cameras on laptops? %)

Adding hours/days to each battery charge is more functional/practical than the very rare occasions for using a back camera. This is an innovative and intelligent idea that I like very much.

Jolla Roadmapping Meeting - Friday 16.01.2015

Thank you for your contribution to the Jolla Tablet project!

We receive a lot of ideas and suggestions, which we are grateful for, but all of them can't be implemented. We've reviewed your idea and unfortunately it is not something we can implement, at least right now.

However, we will keep all suggestions, and might revisit this decision in the future if we see an opportunity to implement this feature-request in an upcoming product/SW release.

Best regards,
The Jolla Tablet Team
