pick up some photography skills
I think HTC phones are good but their focus seems to be on making a great camera not the phone....which I don't think they can do better than the iPhone. A feat that needs experts on image processing on software and hardware which I don't think HTC has.
I think phone company should partner Canon/Nikon/Apple, etc to make a phone with bigger image sensor and with a mechanism where you can attach a small zoom lens ( a new mount for phone!!), then this will kill the digital compact market!!
