    Wow, I don't know how this was missed by me in reviews or anything but did anybody else know the HTC Hero's camera supports TAP to FOCUS? i.e. 3GS?

    You can tap anywhere in viewfinder to set the autofocus point and it works marvelously!

    the pre takes excellent pics. That being said the 3gs takes excellent movies... As good as those flip cameras all the moms are carrying. And how it's integrated with camera and can flip to video instantly is great. And the ability to edit your clip a little on the fly then upload without having to dump on pc is genius.

    Give these phones more credit deserved for multimedia. Been Fantastic having for those moments with kids/family
    The pre takes marginally acceptable pics at best that will do in a pinch. Any, and I mean ANY point and shoot made in the last 4 or 5 years will do better than any, and I do mean ANY smartphone in any situation if available.

    Smartphone cameras are about convenience. The camera on them can best be comapred to the screwdriver on a swiss army knife. It'll do in a pinch, but it's much better to have a real screwdriver.

    for Mobilehavoc re Hero Multitasking: hold the Home key down to quickly switch between open apps ;-) Works like a charm.

    I don't think you people understand what depth of field means. The pre (like all fixed-focus cameras) has everything in focus from a certain distance (6ish or so inches probably) to infinity. EVERYTHING between the minimal focal distance and infinity will be in focus. There is no increasingly out of focus issue (outside of the minimum focal distance).
