I like the idea of a GR Phone. Would buy one immediately. Ricoh should go have a talk with Samsung or LG!

The major problem with combined high-tech things is that both things live their own lives, one get old when the other can be used for 10 more years. One might also get broken. When a camera with new features arrive you also have to find it in a suitable phone. You might never like the combination.

Another problem with multi-things is the complex user interface design. A digital camera usually have at least 20 times more settings compared to a camera in a phone. And the phone has zillions of phone settings. Now you want both?

And, if you want to be able to surf on the phone and even look at film, then you need a LARGE screen. Not 3 inch, but 6 inch. And the screen is usually wider than a camera sensor. This will make the camera huge and also remove all buttons on the back.
