    In Japan, the most popular carrier - NTT Docomo - now limits 100KB for Tx and 10KB for Rx, with their 3G phone.

    For me, the benefit of megapixel camera is I can get clearer VGA size images - which I believe an appropriate size as e-mail attatchment for my business use.

    As you may have experienced, a VGA image made from higher resolution original image is always better than an image from VGA CCD.
    My popular usage is to take photos by my Docomo F900i at VGA resolution, transfer them to my ThinkPad via IrDA and send them out via PCMCIA-PHS adapter. No re-touch is needed.

    This F900i is making me free from carrying DSC all the time during my biz trip.

    Of course, CCD resolution is not the only key factor for image quality. Actually, the image quality of my first mega-pixel phone - D505i - was terrible and forced me to carry DSC.

    Two crucial points missed - the GX30 has a QVGA screen (320x240) and removable memory (an SD card slot).

    In Japan, where megapixel cameras and memory slots are now standard, most pictures taken with a camera phone are never sent over the air.
