OmniVision Hints at 5MP Camera for iPhone, iPad 2nd Gen

The iPad came out 5 days ago, an Apple Media event is scheduled for tomorrow, but the rumor mill never stops. Today some OmniVision executives suggested that the next generation iPhone and iPad (yeah, already) might include one of their 5 megapixels sensor, instead of the widely adopted 3MP. Actually, JP Morgan analyst Paul Coster added that OmniVision is “well positioned” to provide sensors for Apple’s next products.

OmniVision’s sensor have been used by Apple before, and they have a long history of rumors behind them. Whether this might turn out to be true or not, I think we should only focus on the OS 4.0 now. Honestly, I can’t see myself holding a tablet to snap photos. I really don’t understand why people want this so bad.
