I think you have just nailed the issue right there.
Phone cameras in general (for all wireless phones, not just BlackBerrys) were originally designed for convenience and speed-no need to carry additional hardware to snap pics "on the fly".
The tradeoff has traditionally been in quality. In other words, these aren't the devices that you would want to take your wedding photos with.
Technology is closing that gap pretty quickly, and eventually the quality piece will be there with phone cams. We just aren't quite there yet.
