1/1.6" is bigger than even the 1/1.7" sensor in Canon G11/G12/G15.  Hard to imagine, but having a G series like performance in the size of a cellphone is awesome.

The problem that will shadow cameras in phones, is the lack of optical zoom.  A larger than average image sensor in a phone by itself isn't worth getting excited about.

There's a sizeable market for fixed focal length cameras (X100/S, Nikon A, Ricoh GR, RX1), so what are you talking about?

The biggest problem that shadows any camera in a phone is the non-camera part of the phone itself. Case in point: the Nokia 808.
