    I was trying out an application called Sensor Guru (crunchy bytebox) and it says my tablet has a camera flash...

    I looked on the back, and I don't see one.Maybe it's covered and you have you make a hole? Even the Pulse otification Light isn't bright enough to light up much (it's not even in a good place to light up your face, if you were "skyping" in the dark ;)

    It looks like I got more than a paid for, huh?

    BTW- is there a decent sensor reporting app? I had Sensor Toolbox on my old tablet.

    That is correct, but why would the sensor application think there was one?

    The developer of the app would be the one to ask. Maybe he/she can fix it.

    Ya its a new device out with the latest OS and the app might not be updated accordingly.

    here's another potential use for the micro-USB port: to plug in a camera lamp dongle.
