Sigh, this is NOT mini, maybe if it was a Snapdragon 800 in a 4.3" device at 720p (with microSD) I'd be way more interested, but Sony seems to be the only company who has managed to make GOOD...
I'm pretty sure there's prior implementation of things like this...medical simulations and such. Were they awarded this patent without a working product??
QuickPic is a far better photo gallery app for Android anyway, mostly due to it's speed and ability to orient photos based on their ratio rather than relying on the rotation sensor.
Nothing is replacing my dSLR, certainly NOT a cell phone camera, that's for sure.
