Compared with other slate devices, Nexus 7 promises the best features for the price of $199; however it lacks at one thing: high quality camera. This device comes with 1.2 megapixle built-in camera located at the front side of slate and it is capable to shoot videos at 480 pixels. Just recently one XDA developer have revealed that this slate is also capable to shoot videos in HD at 720 pixels. This tutorial will show you how to use flashable .zip that will enable this feature on your Nexus 7 without any hassles.
