HP TouchPad CM9 with Working Camera (Sort of)

It seems that someone has finally been able to get the HP TouchPad camera working and it’s about time! Although it has its bugs and glitches, a camera is a camera and I’m sure we can all be happy about that. It’s the first step towards a fully functional TouchPad and I’m sure the nightly builds will incorporate it soon enough.

The video above is of user ReverendKJR testing it and showing us what sort of issues you’ll come across.
