Engadget reports that OmniVision Technologies, Apple’s current supplier of CMOS (camera) sensors for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, has reportedly announced a 5-megapixel camera sensor that is able to record 1080p video.
The great news about the sensor is that it is thin enough to fit in the iPod touch and iPad, which is unlike the current 5-megapixel sensor which can only fit in the iPhone 4.
This new sensor would vastly improve the current less than 1-megapixel camera and 720p video capabilities in the iPad 2 and fourth-generation iPod touch.
Maybe with this new camera sensor, iPad users may find their iPad camera to be far more useful. Thoughts?
