So what? Jailed people are often disallowed to use mobile phones at all. 
Should mobile phones manufacturers to give up and stop producing mobile 
phones at all then?
[off] I'm amazed how easily people are giving up their legal rights in 
favor of semi-illegal corporate policies (or similar stuff) which are 
trashing human rights to the hell. As for me, I'll never work in such 
jail-like environment. Do you want to have open and free gadget ... but 
still have jail-like job?Amazing!Freedom is not just a word - it's way 
of life. Think about it. Twice. [/off]

As for me, I will never use pluggable camera.Its a separate thing which 
can be lost, forgotten and broken easily (the plug itself is a weak 
place).And it reduces device usability to the hell.Early mobiles 
attempted to use pluggable cameras but it looks like this attempt has 
miserably failed.It has been incredible unpopular idea and died without 
success.However I have nothing against the following: two models, one 
with camera and one without it. However I have no idea how hard and 
costly this to implement (usually, developing 2 devices costs more but 
probably dropping features is relatively easy - just do not solder some 
parts on same PCB and use a bit altered case).

P.S. Of course you can safely ignore my dumb mumblings but before doing 
so, consider that I closely dealt with mobile phones internals since 
2000 and usability is my primary job.

2ALL: sorry for semi-flaming message.
