What is circled in this picture? Is it supposed to be a camera? I think it is just bad pixelation. If you look on the right hand vertical border almost at the same height as the top right corner of the right most app icon it looks like there may be a camera there also. OOH, I bet it is for 3D movie taking with the iPad! Why else would you need two front facing cameras? Avatar 2 is going to be shot entirely on iPads with dual front facing cameras!

AT&T has enough bandwidth available to handle 40 million of these, including the devices already being used on the network. No need to worry. Heck, the California network alone has the ability to handle speeds up to 5 terabytes, yes bytes not bits, per SECOND.
