Samsung micro-shutter could mean salvation for awful cellphone cameras

Almost every cellphone in the world has a camera inside, but most of them stink. Samsung has a better idea, shrinking an entire iris-style mechanism into a 2mm-wide micro-shutter that's small enough to fit inside the tiniest cellphones.

Samsung's not saying when we might see this tech showing up in cellphones or tinycams, but could this be a sneak preview of another component of the upcoming iPhone? Hoping to see this on board this year's cellphones might be overly optimistic, but it sure would be nice to always have an acceptable camera on board an outlandishly small cellphone.
