  • probably a great camera yes, but where is the phone?

    dojn
  • Smartphones are multi-purpose devices, but individual uses vary.

    I never use my phone as a music player, but am continually frustrated by the poor cameras in the phones; Having the phone always in my pocket means i reach for a snapshot more than I ever did with even my digicam, so this would definitely hit the sweet spot.
