    Phone with movable camera to secretly take candid pics

    I'll try to explain this as best as I can. A year or two ago, I heard about this phone (unsure which one) where the camera lens can be rotated. For example, let's say you want to secretly take a picture of someone to your left. You tilt the lense to your left, and hold the phone in front of you. The person has no idea you're taking him/her, because you're holding it in front of you, while the person is on the side of you. Does Verizon offer any phones (current or upcoming) like this? Does anyone know of the phone I'm thinking of?

    I don't think VZW has anything like this.

    Kind of weird question, but I know the LG VX7000 had a swivel camera (along a vertical plane only though). Not sure about a phone that swivels along the horizontal plane, or in addition to the vertical.

    That was a really cool phone for that feature alone. Its too bad it didn't become a trend.

    Even better would be for someone to market a phone with a camera not only on the back, but with lenses on the sides, so you can easily take a pic to your right/left.
