True, I have had a Nokia 6230 for a while now and have only taken a
couple of photos even though the 6230 has a pretty good camera for a
phone (lots of others are worse).

I do use the FM radio and MP3 function a lot, when I am in transit or
just walking around. Considering how many people wear an IPOD as well
as carry a phone I think this is a useful feature in a cell phone that
reduces the amount of junk you are carrying around so less likely to
lose your IPOD or have it stolen.

Consider the size of the lens. (Very small). You won't get very good
picture quality. But might still be useful now and then for souveri
piuctures that don't need to last.

Personally, I think that having a FM radio and walkman/MP3 in a phone is
far more useful than a camera. In the bus, you only need to carry your
phone and can listen to music from your phone.

they are 'poor'.

they are all less than one megapixel, most are blurry, none have flash, few
(if any) have zoom, and proper exposure doesn't even come into play.

they are cool for snapping 'fun' things that are best kept on
cellphones.... the 'photos' themselves are virtually unusable for anything
even remotely important. thoroughly unprintable.

One other thing. When your phone has a camera, you may not be able to
bring it everywhere. Many gyms now prohibit such phones, and if you work
at a bank, you may not be able to use your phone anywhere near areas
that have printouts of customer information. (Especially sincyou can
then email the picture and delete it from your phone to delete any
evidence that you took the picture).

To get this phone to work with Fido all you'd have to do is swap your
chip from your current phone to the K750, right?

Sony Ericsson V800/802SE has a flash. *AND* it's a 3rd generation W-CDMA
handset that supports video calls. But you have to live in Japan or the
parts of Europe that have 3rd gen networks in place to use it...

We're so far behind the rest of the world in terms of cell phone tech here
in North America, it isn't funny. Unified standard, people. Come on. Get
with the program already.

Sorry... I digress. My girlfriend's in Japan at the moment. Her new phone
does stuff I can only dream of, and she's the type who'll never use half the
features. <end rant>
