I agree with you. You can't get into many gov't or corporate facilities with a camera phone and this has the QUERTY keyboard for text and e-mail. The bluetooth on it makes it a phone that would work for me. I don't need a camera on a phone and if I don't have a camera or an MP3 player as part of the phone, I really don't need an expansion card. The target audience for this phone should appreciate it. Target audience being business persons like managers and engineers and marketing execs that need high-speed capable, BT capable, and ease of texting capability for e-mail use while out of office. Looks like Samsung hit the nail on the head for those people, and at $200, it is way more affordable than a Blackberry or a Treo.
