Thanks for clearing that up. I had been waiting for an announcement of the
camera resolution like a kid on christmas eve. Was really hoping for a 3 MP
to replace my current phone or at least a 2 MP with video to better trounce
the iPhone. I still have high hopes for the phone, though I can't help
wondering how much the lack of a basic camera will affect mass adoption.

Possibly very ignorant on my part, but I was under the assumption modifying
the case to add a camera hole would be a very minor change (read
inexpensive). Ie drilling (cutting out?) a hole and covering it with some
transparent material like glass or plastic. I know zilch about how this
works on a large scale, so it is entirely possible I'm wrong here.
