Cameras allow children to take their own pictures and videos (and, given how the resolution of cameras is trending upwards, this makes the amount of memory a tablet has increasingly important) and can also be used for things such as video chatting, if the functionality exists. Some games and apps, including educational ones, also make use of the camera. Having a camera, and preferably one with a decent resolution, is therefore quite important.
The nabi Elev-8 comes with 2 cameras, a 2 megapixel (MP) front facing camera and a 5MP rear facing one. The resolution of the front facing camera is fairly typical, but the resolution of the rear facing camera is far superior to what will be found in the majority of children’s tablets at the time of writing.
