It is simply a software issue because the lens is already on the phone. Subject to the below, I am sure they will come out with an update/patch.
I opined about three weeks ago that maybe RIM is seeing what people think about a video camera and determining if there is a market for it. If there is one, they will put it in the Pearl, call it the 8100v and include it as a reason for all of us to pay for an upgrade.
Then again, it could have been the rush to market precluded it being on the current model. But I don't think this is the reason since adding recording capability is not all that hard to program. Plus, RIM supposedly took three years to develop the Pearl.
Guess we will see what RIM does.
I for one would not be interested in upgrading simply to get a low-end video camera.
