It’s a Camera! It’s a Phone! So Get Your Mouth Out of My Eye!

Cellphones with embedded cameras sound really neat to most people, just like combo fax/printer/copier/PCs. Since we already are tethered to the electronic beasties, why not carry one with a camera – then you can take pics while you chat?

The problem, like super-combo devices, is that you get something at the cost of another item – in this case picture quality, much less video quality. So while people are buying them in droves, Kodak CEO Dan Carp (yes, that’s his name) worries that people will find them too unusable – “Today, camera phones are imaging-capable but photographically disabled”, according to Ben Charny of Cnet.
