Its a major rite of passage for any new technology, when the first professionals acknowledge its use. Thats how PCs gained acceptance in corporate accounting, or journalists starting to use word processors, or marketing researchers admitting to using the internet for research etc. Today CNN has shown the Nokia N93 in its coverage of the 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona, and had a segment shot exclusively with the cameraphone.
Yes, many purists among camera afficionados will thumb their noses at cameraphones, like the 35 mm camera fanatics pooh-poohed the early digital cameras ten years ago, and the Hasselblad-crowd looked down at the 35mm camera crowd in previous decades, etc. But it is now clear, that the high-end cameraphone has graduated to the major leagues, if CNN is willing to put cameraphone content out on the air, without any indication that this was an emergency situation out of a war zone etc - by which cameraphones have been used in the past. Certainly a major milestone for the cameraphone industry, and a nice accolade for the Nokia N93 Multimedia Computer (Nokia's N-Series phones are not called phones anymore, they are called multimedia computers...).
PS and yes, like I said of mine in my review a month ago, this is the superphone for 2007.
