I would have to disagree. I don't care about having a camera on my phone. I
know a few execs. of certain companies who have smartphones that don't even
have cameras. You need to remember to distinguish between smartphone
consumers and mainstream consumers. Most smartphone consumers, like myself,
just want one less device to carry. Blending the PDA and the cellphone is
the logical solution.
