I think rear facing camera is not important as people will steering at you that we have a big iPad and you are recording video from it because iphone suite best for recording videos. The other tablets such as new Google nexus tablet whose price is also less i.e. about $200 can be alternative to iPad. Google nexus has small screen size but it is also good tablet. If you have already iPad2 then don’t upgrade to iPad3 because I don’t think there are so many new features added. So iPad2 is also best for your needs.
