Because Merriam Webster told me to consider it a camera.

I checked, it does nothing of the sort. Wishful thinking and a lot of stretched imagination does.

International commodity coding by the WCO and WTO will not allow you to import or export it anywhere in the world as if it were a camera. It may have some camera-like features but trade regulations define its "essential character" differently.

It pays taxes like a phone, is subjected to the same regulations like a phone and is sold like a phone - hence its name: "phone".

Some of these cameraphones or phonecameras make lovely images though, I grant you thàt.
