more importantly does it have a REAR facing camera? Front-facing cameras on tablets aren't really working with the barcode scanner

touch the barcode icon and hold the camera over the barcode. Some times you have to adjust the angle or the lighting may not be exactly but you can just move it around slightly and it reads.

Hello,

At the moment, our scanner software recognizes only rear-facing cameras for use with the barcode scanner. Since this device has only a front-facing camera, it is not able to access the scanner function. This is something we might revisit in the future. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause.
