Looks neat. I suppose that at some point phone/cams and cam/phones will meet each other.
I myself still believe that things should remain what they are: a phone is a phone, a camera is camera

Interesting design... one issue I noted that for me is a detractor (but no different than other 'phone-based cameras) is that there is no aperture control. It's f2, and f2 *all* the time.

The compromises either a phone or a camera have to make to accommodate the other use will always prevent the combination from being a replacement for either.

Yeah, but it looks like it has a shutter button (!) rather than an icon on a touch-screen ...

This is cool, I wonder how well that would do for images.

I just purchased an adapter to take with me with my trip which attaches to the cell phone, which is a Carson Universal Smart Phone Optics Digiscoping Adapter For Binoculars and scopes, I just purchased it for giggles and fun since I was already planning on taking my binoculars and camera stuff.. What I love about it even more, it even works with my neighbors huge expensive telescope too.

For this Kodak wonder how well this adapter would work with that phone. I like that case too :-) this would be fun to play with, too bad they don't need any testers.
