Yes this is true but by that you are only stating the obvious and insinuation that Apple will only put on a decent camera once they get some sort of improved super optics. There are plenty of phones that are thin but have semi decent cameras - take the SE W890 for example.
Yes better optics do work but I dont think any camera phones these days use optics of quality found in digi cams do they? Sm im guessing by that rationale non one buys any camera phones as they are 'just megapixels'. Please you cannot hide behind this argument all the time.

But not for much else...
No one is asking for 8mp or even 5 for that matter. I think it's obvious imaging is not on the priority list for Apple. But 3.2 surley is an acceptable request. All people want is something adequete for taking random pics here and there.
