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.<br><br>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.
