Posting By Camera Phone

Hello,
First, I know Brad has been talking about how posting by camera phone is in the works, but I was just wondering if there were any more details on how and when it will be implemented. I was just wondering if there was any update on this. This is one feature that I am really anxious to have.
Secondly, In my anxiousnous to have it, I attempted to post via the normal email gateway. You can view the results here: http://www.livejournal.com/users/the1brian/6705.html . It pretty much stripped everything from the email, except for the text, and the URL to the picture. This is good, because it stripped sprint's ads, but bad because it also stripped the image, and allows/makes them view it off of sprint's site, where they can find more personal information than some might want to give, as well as the pin to the post-by-email mechanism (which I already changed after posting it). Still, it leads me to believe that it wouldn't be too hard to implement posting by cameraphone through the normal post-by-email mechanism. For reference, a copy of a similiar (not the exact same for all the links, etc) email can be viewed here: http://thebrian.net/pictureemail.html so you can see what the email looks like before it goes through lj's gateway, and is stripped of almost everything.

Thanks,
~Brian
