Sad thing, people tend to look at spects. Lets keep in mind it is a easy way to compare directly devices. If makes sense, no. Should i prefer a 13 MP Samsung digital camera over a 8 MP Leica digital camera... ?
Now, 13 MP... In a small cmos... With no decent glass in front of the sensor...

Megapixels translate to image size, not image quality, so you should factor in a camera’s megapixel count mainly if you plan on making large prints or cropping and enlarging portions of an image.
Now please do tell , what professional photographer is going to use a camera phone for photo shoots, poster sized adverts etc. Geesh!

Bingo! Most phone pics end up on social media of some sort, NOT in places where a professional photographer's domain is. Can you imagine a National Geographic photographer ditching $10,000 of equipment because the OP thinks a megapixel number means anything. I suggest the OP buy Nokia's 41 megapixel phone, after all sales are in the toilet so lots of cheapies out there,lol. User experience sells, Z10 X10 will have that locked down pat!

Did you miss the elephant in the room? MP does not sell the camera, user experience does. Are you familiar with the Nokia 808 with it's 41
MP camera? It's sales are in the toilet. There is a small group of die hard buyers who buy on specs, the funny thing is sadly most of them have no clue what they are talking about when it comes down to the specs and how those specs work as a whole, they just figure more or a higher number is better.

You're right there, some people who take pics have a natural knack for composing some great shots. I still have an old Cannon EOS Elan slr kicking around someplace. With a tripod and the right film,settings and lighting conditions I would bet it would shame the some modern digital cameras, whilst taking pics of the Grand Canyon. A few years back 5mp Nikon/Cannon professional cameras were used almost exclusively for major high end photo shoots that filled major magazines around the world. The mp one up games on phones is a joke at best. Phone cameras have their place, just as hand held digital cameras have their place, both are obviously not used by wedding photographers but try explaining that to spec chasers,lol.
Just for fun go dig up some Sports Illustrated from 2001, look at the full page spreads, most done with a Nikon D1x digital camera with 5.47 mp !!

I use my phone camera for "this is me beside the bus driver" pictures. If I wanted to properly compose pictures for an arts course, or for posters, I would definitely use something different. Not sure that the majority of people buying camera phones are much different.

A little off topic,but apparently my dual core HTC sensation is suffering lag caused by entropy and not a dodgy OS. The 8mp camera is pretty crap too, but mostly down to the software (sense 4). The specs are reasonable for a phone, but the results are pretty crap.
So with a dubious os, poor camera drivers and quantum issues on my current phone, I just need this bb10 phone to work well, regardless of its 'average spec'

I'm just gunna go out on a limb here and say that if the z10 came out with a 6 megapixel camera, more then 70% of the BB community would be pretty pissed off. What's good is QNX if you're not using it to its full potential? Or at least I would. It's irritating to see people being like "its a megapixel race", no, ITS WHAT'S SELLING RIGHT NOW. ITS WHAT MAKES MONEY. Why do you think everyone wants Instagram on our BBs so badly? Sheesh, in order for bb10 to go anywhere, it has to strive to be number one, and making up excuses that a "beefed up camera" is not needed, well newsflash, it is.
