Why isn't there a 1 megapixel camera in the Treo 650?

One of our major gripes with the new Treo 650, well, besides no built-in WiFi, is its paltry VGA quality camera (all the initial specs that leaked out for the smartphone indicated that it would the camera would get a bump up to at least one megapixel). Apparently what happened is that palmOne was intent on slapping a 1.3 megapixel camera in there, but couldn't find a camera module that worked well-enough in low light. They go on to say they would rather deliver better photos at low light, than crummy photos at higher resolutions. Ever heard of this thing called a flash?
