This may be the case for the low-end point & shoot cameras BUT any day their optics is far superior to those in mobile phones.

The high end camera market is thriving and is not in any danger of going away...

Oh those predictions

Just to show how easy it is to be wrong in predicting the future of technology and trends, check out this EDN story on a 2005 market report claiming that smartphone cameras would actually cause the digital still camera market to grow, as users leanred to love digital photos but wanted a better camera experience:

As they say: "oh, well, never mind!"

What smartphones can't do

Regardless of the number of pixels or quality of their lens, smartphones not only lack optical (true) zoom [digital zoom is a "fake" and greatly diminishes resolution]--but they don't have a socket for a tripod mount. So many of the photos taken with them come out a little fuzzy, since it is hard to hold them steady-enough while their "shutter" captures the image. It can be very frustrating--so it you want photos which are sharp, keep a regular digital still camera and a tripod handy.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
