What kind of camera do people expect in a device as thin as the iPhone, given circa 2006 design schematics?
Better quality camera + more options at that time = incredibly thick Nokia N95 with 5 min. of battery life.
It's a zero sum gain. The more you want in one area, the less you'll get in another.

I wouldn't say "happy", but satisfied.
I didn't buy the iPhone for a camera, so I am not looking for some monster camera.
What I would have liked to see was a little bit more of the software side - some filters, multi-shot, timer, etc.

Surely those weren't all taken with your iPhone were they? I guess this is why I posted the question. I know it's only a 2 mp camera in a small phone. My images have been so poor that I wanted to know if something was possibly wrong with it. And if those images are from your iPhone, something is wrong with mine.
I don't use it much and I'm into photography with a lot of more expensive camera equipment for that. But occasionally it is convenient to snap a pic of something with the phone. I just haven't been able to effective do that. In fact, I've taken better images with 1.3mp cams in other phones.
Anyway, just curious and I think I got my answer. I'm loving everything else about the iPhone, though.

I am really disappointed with the quality especially in the dark areas or with shadows. Big however, is the ability to immediately send it to Flickr. There is an application called AirMe which you can set up to upload everytime you take a picture. I love that aspect of it.

I got some great results with outdoor shots, using Photoshop to make panoramas. With the iPhone camera, light is not only your friend, it's your True Love.
