Hardware questions: Does the 1973 have a camera?

It seems from the pictures and the absence of "camera" from the features
list that the Neo1973 does not feature a camera.  This seems unfortunate.  I
love the idea of a Linux based phone, I use Ubuntu on my PC so the idea of
using apt-get to manage the software sounds great.  The GPS idea sounds very
interesting.  I had a look at Nokia's Linux tablet community site and all
the applications that I could see there seemed to relate to ways to use it
as a communications device (and so make more money for the networks).

Obviously the 1973 is a communications device and so is likely to feature
applications that will allow email, limited web browsing, phone calls and
other data transfer uses, but (as is implied by the GPS) it is also a device
capable of running a variety of other applications.

So, will it have a camera?  And will the screen be protected (being a touch
screen) without adding too much bulk to the unit?  Thanks.
