he asked: "Has ever anyone made a picture with a mobile phone camera that
doesn't suck?" - i had a good answer to it. :) if you want to see the epitomy
of awesome technology in phones - visit japan and wander through yodobashi's
phone section. i lived there for 4 years. they are well ahead of everyone else.
their software and ui's suck though :)

seriously dropping camera isn't going to free up money for 3g. 3g is going to
cost many many many TIMES what the camera does. you're throwing out the
basketballs from the garage to make room for the hummer.
