Here's a pic of the Nokia N8. Notice the light.
Nokia N8-00 - Smartphone with 12MP Camera - Nokia - USA
I had a 5mp Nokia phone and now the Nexus S. The Nokia camera was far better.
I am surprised that Sony hasn't done something in this line. Sony does make cameras - from DSLR to point and shoot.
Of course putting hi-res sensors in 'cameras' that are held at arm's length is completely ridiculous in any case: shooting at arm's length can never
result in a sharp/focused image because of permanent 'camera' movement. Just peruse your phone's images closely in full screen on a large monitor. They are always
out of focus! No amount of hi-res is going to change that. So paying for hi-res capability in a phonecam is really simply a waste of money.
