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.

<br><br>Even the GTA02 seems to be missing a camera. Surely if this is intended to be aimed at consumers a camera is a must?<br><br>If you look on Nokia's website they have 35 phones listed. Filter that by "with camera" and you get 30. Consumers want cameras and no consumer is going to buy a phone without one??
<br><br>When the Neo is finally launched as a consumer product (say early 2009) it's not going to matter how open it is or how many 3rd party apps there are - People will not buy a phone without a camera. I think the whole project is in real danger of being a very big, expensive flop.
