MobileInfo Comments and Advisory: Integration of phone with camera and video is moving forward but hybrid device is still far short of what the real thing will do in terms of frames per second and duration of the recording. Small steps like these may lead to the destination some day in future. The clincher is still the transmission of the recorded video to another location.
