Don't get me wrong - I have one of these smartphones myself (and like it).

And I'm not against mobile photography or anything like that....

However what I'm truly getting sick about here is the endless iPhone "Editorials" (more like elaborate commercials)  or Nokia "News-commercials" (where they entice a photographer to shoot the latest and greatest, say how great it is  blah vlah)...

Why does a respectable news site have to re-publish all of that crap? it's not "news", it's not "reviews"... it's just a modern form of advertisement.

what happened to proper journalism?

So my feedback and suggestion: STOP THE INFOMERCIAL SPAM on Dpreview.
