We already have the Samsung Galaxy Camera which has 3G connectivity.  It's not a camera that's also a phone though.  It's simply a camera that has the same sort of mobile data connectivity that most phones (and some other devices) have, and is also running the Android operating system.

Since I don't believe that every other camera manufacturer is going to adopt Android (although some certainly might), and since I do believe they'll eventually add mobile data connectivity to at least some models regardless (3G and beyond), I think we're going to see some sort of support for the popular social networking sites and other internet services integrated into the various camera UIs.  But to be honest, I'm kinda dreading the day when "bloatware" can be used in the same sentence with "camera".
