WOW that is crazy Kodak is coming out on every phone first Motorola now Nokia I wonder what carrier is next?
Motorola and Nokia are not carriers they're manufacturers :P
Not as surprising as one may think, in a world where convergence of multiple tech devices is key to a technology manufacturers survival, they will often team up with another manufacturer who is a leading manufacturer in the device they wish to converge with. So Nokia good at making cell phones, Kodak good at making cameras, so if you want a killer camera phone put the two together :)
Sony on the other hand avoided this due to the fact they make fantastic cameras under Cyber Shot, so no need to partner with any camera company.
hmmm...i can see it now the NEW NOKIA EASY SHARE with 10 MP and an actual automatic retracting lens with digital zoom
all of course put together into a tiny touch screen phone
dont forget xenon flash...or at least some LED light haha
