Camera Phones Banned

For all the hype about how camera phones were going to be the next big thing, it appears that no one let the law makers know that. In more and more places camera phones are being banned because they represent a way to violate peoples’ privacy or to record and distribute private information. I don’t think most people in the wireless industry expected this kind of backlash against camera phones. Of course, it’s probably just an initial overreaction to something new. As people get more used to camera phones, and begin to notice what they look like, it won’t seem like they’re so “sneaky” any more.
