Um, has this guy ever used or read about an SLR ever. 50 million megapixels or not, somehow this future Nokia with its single lens is going to zoom clearly up to 500mm or more, back to around 10mm for wideangle shooting and provide all the necessary sharpness and quality and clarity in between, avoid barrel distortion etc and allow full exposure adjustment at the tip of your fingers? WOW, that will be the most awesome phone ever! I can see it now, sports photographers at the cricket sitting on the boundry with their Uber Nokias snapping away. Actually, they'll be obsolete, you'll just be able to get the pics from people's phones in the crowd. Can someone please slap Anssi Vanjoki.

Boatsmart519, I'd go with the Panasonic BMP-BD35 or Sony BDP-350. I can personally vouch for the Sony, excellent Blu-Ray picture and upscaling of DVDs. No internal decoding for DTS is the only major difference between the two, which wasn't an issue for me as I have a receiver that can do the decoding itself. The main advantage with the Panasonic is that it can decode all HD audio formats internally to output to HDMI capable receivers that can accept predecoded signals. One thing, the Panasonic doesn't have a coaxial digital output, only optical, that may or may not prove a problem down the track (my old receiver's optical died). Overall video quality from both is apparently excellent. Sony also has a BDP-550 which can output predecoded HD audio over 7.1 analog channel so if your receiver can handle that then that's worth considering as well. Check out Cnet America (cnetreviews.com) as well, their reviews seem a fair bit more detailed. Good luck
