That's all fine and dandy but what's so newsworthy about these cameras? HP announced them at the CES in January 2006 and these cameras have been available in the US and UK markets since September 2006.

Here's a couple of links describing the feature back then - Macworld gadget blog and this blog post which has a few funny comments.
