3/NEC Unveil Twin-Camera 3G Phone

Why have one camera on your phone when you can have two? NEC is launching (via Hutchison’s 3) a new 3G phone that includes two separate cameras – one for taking still shots, and one for video. Of course, most digital cameras these days can already do both, so it makes you wonder why bother installing two separate cameras, with two separate lenses, that can only add to the bulk of the camera. It certainly is a big sucker, though it takes it’s styling from the Treo, apparently, and includes a full QWERTY thumb keyboard.
