No flash for the camera=fail

I would have considered picking one up had the included a flash for the camera. I wonder how much that really would drive up the price..? This will be pretty useless in low light night indoor shots etc. I'll stick w my L9. Puzzling to me they tout the camera yet leave that off.
ahaha yeah, but I mean they are selling it on the HSN.... I am under the impression that only seniors watch it and order from it? xD.

South Park anyone? Razz

Obviously, this phone is for people who just want a smartphone and don't really focus on taking pictures with a phone. This was a way for MS to get the phone into the hands of people who don't want a contract or spending $200-$300 for a phone.
Rivalizes in quality with those higher resolution cameras found in more expensive devices. The lack of a flash is somewhat extrange (I guess It is due to the small battery nokia put into this device... Battery life is way better than you would expect ...
