Fixed focal length fixed lenses

A few months back I was stoned and barbecued for suggesting that camera phones might be heading to replacing even DSLRs.

Enter Nokia's 41 MP with 6 Zeiss lenses. How long could it be now?

My wife carries around a 12MP compact with a 25mm-500mm range in her purse.  The Nokia could not come close to replacing that.

As long as they have fixed focal length fixed lenses, camera phones will always be at the low-end of compact cameras, even if they have a 41MP sensor.
