The HTC's are pretty good camera,

But do you want a smart phone or a regular phone. The Nokia are very good for a non smart phone.

She loves her "phone". She shoots video and takes stills all the time. While not as good as her Sony, she has this with her all the time. This is the first shot, except this time it is the photo I took when she snapped me on the pier. Taken with Sony A300, Tamron 28-300 Lens.

I have always resisted technology, for some reason... I do like her machine, and I am looking at the Motorola as well. Do I need it? No, but it would be fun, and at my age, I can't afford to be too cautious, that's a luxury reserved for the young..

These do very good, but they need a lot of light. Her indoor pics are not impressive, and she realizes this.

LOL, as you get older you get more toys to play with.

But to be honest, I get a new phone or 2 a year. And for a smart phone, I think htc and the iphone are amoung the better cameras out there. Blackberry is lagging behind in that department.

Nokia and sony have very good camera phones if you do not want a smart phone.

Really. I have no desire to check Email or Facebook from my phone, so the Sony you mentioned might be the right thing.( I have enough trouble staying focussed behind the wheel as it is..

Yeah, I get to play with allot of different phones. And I have to say nokia and sony are very good camera phones. Samsung and LG are not as good. I have not seen the new motorola yet.
