You will probably have a wait a while before you see a blackberry with a built-in camera.

Blackberrys are primarily sold to large corporations and most of those DO NOT allow cameras into the office, for security and intellectual property concerns.

with the popularity of the 7100 series soaring, i would imagine we'd see little things such as this sooner rather than later. perhaps in the next consumer version of the handheld, we will see add-ons such as this. i don't see this option ever being available on the business-side of handhelds from RIM.

however, you will see the light of day for BlackBerry Connect long before you will see an available camera from RIM. i think this is going to be someone's best bet if they want a non-RIM consumer handheld with all the bells and whistles along with BlackBerry functionality.

You will probably NEVER see a camera in a BlackBerry. iDEN, CDMA, GSM, whatever...They are not made for the every day consumer, they are made for corporations (as geekman686 said). If you NEED a camera for your business, then I highly doubt that a phone cam will be good enough anyway...so, with that in mind, think of how many huge corporations need camera enabled phones to do business.

Again, there is a HUGE consumer market share for Blackberry handsets now, in just a few short months. In the last few months alone, I'm sure that RIM's first level, non-priority support lines are more than 75% consumers rather than businesses. I know that by early February, T-Mobile's 7100t model had gained 20% of the total TMO RIM hardware share (it debuted at the very end of October). The 7100 series handsets have shown that there was a consumer interest in the technology. While some providers were very excited about the product (such as T-Mobile), others more than thought on the idea of not having it due to the potential overwhelming influx in support costs (I spoke to an AT&T technical rep about this aspect).
