So put it on the wishlist for a later version.  No matter how much
anybody on this list wants a camera, I want the phone in my hot little
hands more; no way is it worth delaying getting the phone out.

FWIW, in my age group (I'll be 50 all too soon), I know many more
people who only have a camera on their phone because it's nearly
impossible to get a phone without one than I do people who actually
want a camera.
