Press Begins To Understand Camera Phones

Good timing. So soon after Alan Reiter complains about the press being so focused on the bad side of camera phones, USA Today has an article which points out why camera phones are so popular. Kevin Maney gets the two big reasons right off the bat: you always have it and it’s connected to the internet. Those are the two things that make camera phones different from digital cameras – and why the comparison between digital cameras and camera phones doesn’t make much sense. Those are the two basic reasons why people like camera phones. Now, the next step is for people to realize that those two things (always with you and connected) open up tremendous new possibilities for what you can do with camera phones, for both work and personal uses.
