I assume they don't want to redesign the whole layout. I understood that
implementing dual sim support would be too much work, because it is not as
trivial as I thought. A keypad would result in a lot of case design issues.
I think camera + 3G would be doable and I would be happy with that.
And maybe also an IR transmitter (so we can use it as an remote control) and
other stuff like a thermistor would be easy to implement. I will add this to
my neo when I get it:)
