Update: My bad. First I thought the PR made a mistake in putting the rear camera as 3 Megapixel. So, I changed to 8 Megapixel. However, after looking at the close up of the lens plus other review sites, I am so wrong. Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (Slim version) comes with 3 MegaPixels camera. Sorry for the confusion.
