I'm not sure that taking pictures on a field trip is actually utilizing a "new" technology. Back in the olden days, we took our cameras on field trips. I'm not seeing anything here where the cellphone in and of itself is helpful in the everyday classroom. I can see that it allows the students to use one tool to do multiple things (photograph, sound recordings) but those tools have been available to students for a couple decades now.

Perhaps students can use cell phone calendars to keep track of their assignments. Paper records are going by the wayside and many employers expect you to keep most records electronically. This would be a good way to start students on that track.

That is ridiculous. Learning to keep records electronically is NOT a difficult skill. A student does not need a cell phone with which to practice.
Cell phones are a distraction anywhere there are people trying to concentrate. It blows my mind that EVERY SINGLE public event I attend where the speaker specifically says (often more than once) for people to turn their phones either off or to silent has at LEAST one total idiot that has to fumble with his or her phone because it's ringing obnoxiously and rudely while somebody's speaking.
Keep phones out of the classroom.
