Tears are shed on the cameraphone's history

Brian White

We actually shed a few tears in reading a recent feature about the all-too-recent history of the ubiquitous cameraphone. Yes -- it's hard to find even a mid-tier wireless handset these days without a simple VGA sensor on board, even though most entry-level cellys don't have any cam at all. Where have we come from the days of the Sony Ericsson T610 to the Sanyo SCP-5300 -- remember those early cameraphones? Image quality has steadily (but slowly) improved and now your camera (at least one of them) is with you at all times -- and all facets of life are instantly photographable and can be pumped to the net right from the handset. Good times.
