The next step would be to completely eliminate the mechanical shutter (electronic activation and deactivation of image capture) so PD-pixels don't have any blackout at all.

I think you'll always want to have the mechanical shutter be optional.  Electronic shutters don't completely shut off the sensor and the mechanical shutter keeps the sensor in the dark and therefore reduces noise.

Can't wait to see this technology to come into mobile phones. In my opinion, the camera market below 300€ is dead. You can get a NEX 3(whatever iteration is the newest one) for so cheap money and anything cheaper can't really stand out from 'good' smartphone-cameras.

Hopefully it scales to the small size.
