    Anyone familiar with the industry?
    Exactly what kind of Camera could Apple get (if the rumors are true) with a $10 price tag?

    Are we talking 1~2 MP? 3 ~5 MP?
    Fixed Focus? Auto Focus?
    What type of lens? Carl Zeiss Optics?
    How good would the light sensors be?

    Cause even on ebay a 2MP Camera Component with Fixed Focus sells for 10$

    Buddy, it won't be Carl Zeiss lens. Those are some pretty high quality lens.

    I'm going to guess and say it's 2.0MP.

    Yea I know, I'm just pointing out the fact that perhaps the upgrade won't be worth it.

    Anyone know how much Apple spent on the first gen Iphone's camera?

    I would say a 3mp camera with auto focus. Just like the iPhone 3GS. Or they might cheap out and put a 2mp camera in there, but hey, it's a camera. OR they might get really excited and put a better camera in there like 5mp but that's unlikely.

    You're forgetting the fact that they are buying these cameras in bulk (IE, a lot of cameras) and from an asian supplier (IE cheaper than US made)
