  • Smart Cameras

    I've just seen an add for the new Samsung "Smart" Cameras, and have a brilliant idea.

    Why not include a sim card slot and then they could work as a phone as well

    Very dry
    I've worked hard to be this grumpy. It hasn't been easy at times but it's worth it.

      Joking apart: Given the growing computational power in cameras, I wonder how far away we are from running Apps on our cameras...
      Look, I'm an old man. I shouldn't be expected to put up with this.

        Indeed. It's just a simple marketing function-reversal. Phones have better cameras nowadays, the Marketing guru's are just swapping the functionality around and will soon be promoting a Camera with a phone rather than a phone with a camera!

            Great idea, Graham. You should apply for a patent... :roll eyes:

              Nokia beat you to it didn't they with the 41MP phone camera? Or HTC, Samsung, Apple...

              In my pocket i carry a fully fledged computer that is faster and more powerful than my laptop, a camera that has a good P&S camera, GPS, MP3/video player and most importantly the ability to make phone calls. It probably does more than I can ever imagine wanting to use it for. Best of all I never leave the house without it. Now people can also make payments and use phones as travel cards. Step change in how we look at single platforms for many operations
