Rear camera - high quality, for taking photos.

Front camera - lower quality, but easier to compress and transmit over the internet - it is for pointing at your face for a "webcam" like video conversation with another person. Apple calls this feature "Facetime".

Quoted from Apple:

Two cameras. One for them. One for you.
iPad has two built-in cameras, one on the front above the display and one on the back. You can switch between them anytime during a call. The front camera faces you, for saying hello. The back camera faces what’s in front of you, for showing off where you are, who you’re with, or what you just splurged on at the mall. And if something funny happens on your end, your friend can see it, too.

I think that pretty much sums it up.
