Next iPhone Could Include Flash (Not the Adobe Kind)

flash_gordon_movie_imageGoogle’s (GOOG) Nexus One, Palm’s (PALM) Pre, and Motorola’s (MOT) Droid all ship with an LED flash beside their cameras and the next iPhone may as well.

That’s the word from AppleInsider, which claims some insight into the next iteration of Apple’s (AAPL) iconic device.

“People familiar with Apple’s initiative” tell the publication that the company has been ordering “tens of millions” of LED camera flash components for delivery this year, presumably with the intention of building them into the next-generation iPhone and iPod touch.

I have no confirmation of this myself, but it certainly seems plausible, and given the lousy photos the iPhone takes in low-light situations, more likely an inevitability.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
