A mobile telephone quipped with a camera may employ, as a camera flash,
one or more RGB tri-color LEDs arranged on a face of the mobile telephone
which is aligned with the direction in which a photograph may be taken by
the camera. The viewing angle of the RGB tri-color LED may be greater
than the field angle of the camera, and a lens may be arranged in front
of emitting portion(s) of the RGB tri-color LED so as to cause
illuminance to be uniform within the field angle of the camera. The RGB
tri-color LED may also serve as an indicator of telephone functions.
