This thread was mentioning cameras, how about a smartphone that had a physical "zoom" lens on it. That'd be cool. Not a software zoom, which just blows up the pic and makes it blurry/pixelated, but an actual lens that would extend from the phone by an inch or two. Camera manufacturers would loose business on their lower-end consumer market.
That's what we're all waiting for! Lol, but:
1. Just incorporating a miniature Zoom lens to the phone will cost quite a bit!
2. Camera MFG's have "Patents" on this, so that would cost even more!
3. And they would be shooting themselves in the foot if they released those Patents!
No one would buy cameras anymore!?
Phone MFG's Will have to reinvent the Camera completely and circumvent those Patents! That's gonna cost billions! 0-0

And what the camera manufacturers don't have patented I'm sure Apple does.Originally Posted by electricman58
