Six month sentence for having a camera phone in court

A 19 year old man in the UK was sentenced to a six month custodial sentence for taking photos and video during a robbery trial using his camera phone.  I am sure there is a lot more to this story but it drives home the exposure that camera phone owners open themselves up to unwittingly.  Many companies ban cameras and I am sure someone somewhere has gotten in trouble due to the camera. The problem I see (at least in the US) is you can’t find a phone with Bluetooth without a camera.
