well... it doesn't have one because it wasn't added at build time. yes the Eris has one.. as far as why they left it out... no idea.. just like why would they leave a LED flash off a phone as well.. it seems like that would be a standard feature for a camera but even certain versions of the Samsung Galaxy S won't have a flash, but some will.
now for me personally, I don't hold my phone smashed next to my face, so I haven't had any issues with not having a sensor
