    Hmm indeed...

    "Although we understand that the camera does not have cellular voice capabilities, it will be compatible with various VoiP apps, such as Skype, which will enable it to be used for making voice and video calls over 3G/4G or WiFi. Photographic features include a 21X zoom lens, spanning 23-481mm (equivalent) and a built-in 'Photo Wizard' for editing photographs in-camera."

    well, that seems better than the nikon thing announced recently, which IIRC had no way of communicating through voice... but still, how hard can it be to include a phone in these things?!?? 21x zoom is pretty neat though, wonder how it'll perform

    It possibly won't beat the Nokia, but I'm hoping its a step in the direction of a Sony RX100 merged with Samsung Galaxy S3.
    Probably a matter of time.
