Many companies take a dim view of camera phones as they see them as a security threat. While some monitor the entry of these phones into their campuses, others have banned employees from carrying these gadgets within the office. So for all those who work in such work places, iPhone’s 2.0 megapixel camera feature might be a turn off.

It has barely been a week since the iPhone launch and iPhone hacks are popping out just about every day. It all started with the blogging fraternity guessing the most likely iPhone hacks, then we had a YouTube video that gave a step by step on how to disassemble an iPhone, then it was DVD Jon who claimed of hacking the iPhone activation to make it run without AT&T (minus the phone feature) and now iPhone hackers are claiming to have taken another huge step forward last night.
More details about the iPhone hack available after the jump.
The best thing about the iPhone in my opinion is that its a phone with a music player and whats great is that the music player is the best iPod Apple has ever made. So I am not sure how many of you out there are going to be excited to hear that DVD Jon has hacked the iPhone activation such that you can activate the iPhone without AT&T.

I will not be doing it to my iPhone whenever I get one (which will be as soon as Apple launches the iPhone in Europe) and I am sure most of you lucky ones who have got their iPhone will not be doing it as well, but thanks to folks at PdaParts.com you can see this YouTube video of taking the iPhone apart.

Based on early estimates, Apple has sold more than half a million iPhones up to the first weekend, the demand has been probably expected for the so called "God machine", however there are quite a few things iPhone can’t do yet and there is the opportunity for all the geeks out there to get the iPhone to do what is not possible.
There have already been some blog reports of iPhone firmware hitting the internet so we are probably not too far away from seeing iPhone hacks popping up. Based on reports from Engadget, it looks like the iPhone’s system restore image has already shown up online; it might be a while before anyone can de-construct this thing into meaningful though so far everything looks well encrypted so far.
