    I would like to buy one of these phones! I really want a good cameraphone with optical zoom + Xenon flash. I live in the U.K., is this possible or do I have to wait until the Nokia 12mp optical zoom cameraphone comes out next year?

    The subsequent time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I imply, I do know it was my choice to learn, but I actually thought youd have one thing fascinating to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix for those who werent too busy on the lookout for attention.
