    I understand Rim had to go fixed focus on the 9900/9930 camera. Can it take a clear close up shot of small numbers?

    I often use my phone to grab serial numbers off equipment and camera really comes in handy for this. As an example, here is a close up of a Canadian Bank Note, taken with an iPhone 4 under ambient lighting:

    See attachment.

    It's not the clearest pic I've taken with this phone but it's not too bad. The IP has a mechanical autofocus which is pretty good.

    Would you mind snapping a pic of a partitial windows 7 product key, or a small set of numbers that I could compare with what can take with the iPhone?

    With the digital zoom you can get acceptable images such as your example.

    In my opinion you can get acceptable quality pictures close up. Search for my posts in other camera threads and my Bold 9930 review for examples.
