I guess the cell phone that one guy thought would be the start of the end of consumer stand alone camera market won't have its hyped zoom. Maybe it never worked?

Are you talking about that periscope-style zoom?

There was a prototype so I think it did work, why it hasn't been released yet might be another interesting question.

Yes, but how well did it work? We only have the company's word. Evidently it didn't work good enough to make it into their flagship camera, implying something was off about it.
