SmartPhones and Shallow DoF - no large sensors needed

If you haven't seen smartphone camera makers are working hard to not only create very shallow DoF, but to also let you pick the focal point AFTER the picture is taken.  There are many benefits here.  One is, no longer will you slightly miss focus and ruin a shot, and another is you can change your mind later after evaluating what looks better.

This will trickle up to the larger sensors too.  And NO, at this moment you can NOT do it for EVERY situation, but it is only a matter of time.
