I did say "meaningful". I can take stills and video with my cellphone.
When you pop out the camera, it pops up some chat program to which 
nobody seems to be connected. *That* is "not meaningful".

I'm well aware of the distinction. I'm not entirely clear why you felt 
it necessary, but thank you for the tutorial.

The problem is that Nokia saw fit so market a device with a camera and 
no network applications to make use of it apart from the default dodo.

"Leaving it to the community" is all very well, but it simply hasn't 
worked in the case of the camera. (I'm actually uninterested in using 
the camera anyway; this was an example).
