When and where might a cell phone with this capability be used?  Looks like roughly 10X which is limiting for most scientific applications that would require greater resolution.

This is quite impressive. Imagine the field application potential. Health screenings in far off countries; examining rare samples on the spot. The only information I would like to have known is how the megapixels translate into magnification.
