Emily Turrettini discovered that Samsung, makers of quite a lot of camera phones, are now banning them in their own factories, as they're afraid that people will use them for corporate espionage. The link that Emily originally included is now gone, but another story has the details including an answer to my first question: the factory that makes camera phones will not have the ban enforced. Seems like an over-reaction, but the number of such "mobile phones banned!" stories seems to be showing up at an increasing rate. It will be interesting to see if the resulting bans lessen the adoption rates of such phones, as people will realize there are additional tradeoffs.
