How about reviewing some of the top end camera phones at DCRP? It seems to me that they can replace the low end P&S quite well nowadays.
Does it seem like a topic of interest for others also or is it just me?
It doesn't to me...in the money needed to buy a good 5mp camera..you could by a Canon S5 for the same price...
You can also get cameras for $150 that'll provide better quality snaps than a $450 camera phone...

There are a number of 5 mp phones including one from Samsung with a 3x optical zoom and I see both Samsung and I think Nokia are producing a 8mp phone.I supect the compromises required to combine phone ,camera MP3 player in one package are such that the camera element will remain inferior to even a basic camera but it would be interesting to see one of the more advanced camera phones subject to one of Jeff's reviews,perhaps as a one off ?

I think phones with built-in cameras are gimmicks. Judging by my wife's they're complete rubbish anyway.
Nup, not for me...
This sounds like an oxymoron to me:
Sorry; not a worthwhile idea IMHO. After all, this is a camera review site, not a mobile phone review site.

Previous gear: Ricoh AF 500 -> Samsung AF Zoom 1050 (still got that one) -> Zenit E -> Ricoh KR-10 Super -> Ricoh XR-X
I have LBA and CBA for Pentax models not even announced!
In all the world none can compare to this tiny weaver
His deadly cloth so silky and fair
Thx Jacek, that comparison was exactly what I was looking for. Beowulff, I'd recommend you comparing the sample pictures from the Samsung mobile phone and Canon IXUS digital camera yourself
Seeing how I can't keep up with "regular" digital cameras, I don't see I could ever expand to cover mobile phone cameras.

Even if Jeff does the reviews on camera phones I won't be reading it... too many 'real' cameras out there.
