It's not mentioned in the list of new features and capabilities for the GTA02 
while the other devices are. AFAIK nobody from FIC has even hinted at camera 
support in GTA02.

Interestingly in a recent survey The Register found a camera was the only 
feature rated undesirable by more people than rated it desirable.

I've worked at sites where cameras, including in phones, aren't allowed. It'll 
be nice to have something modern to take to such sites.
