The end of point-and-shoot cameras?

Stumbled across an interesting post that points to the potential end of an entire consumer market: Point-and-shoot cameras.

Cameras are yesterday. Mobile phones are THE camera now, and as quality improves will become our ONLY camera.

Whether analog or digital, standalone cameras will just become another bulky add-on next to cameraphones. If my cellphone camera provided good enough fidelity for candid shots, why would I have a separate digital camera? As soon as cameraphones have multiple megapixel quality, cameras will be a niche market.
