I wonder when PL mounts and 12V DC input start to become standard available options.
You'll also need special head adaptors that clamp onto the lens instead of the camera!
(I know they aready have those for existing stills lenses, but they'll need something for existing cine glass).
Wonder what will Star Wars Episode 7 be shot on; an iPhone App perhaps?
These are indeed exciting times, for cinematographers and hecklers alike!
There seems to be two markets developing in the 35mm sensor world, one uses the PL mount for cine glass and the other various stills mounts. Purely on a lower cost basis (resulting in more camera being manufactured I would assume), would be for the latter. It's something that has been happening with the RED One to some extent, although I haven't seen a breakdown percentage or numbers wise PL mount vs stills mount for the RED One.
How interchangeable these mounts need to be would be another matter. I expect Sony and Panasonic are aiming these cameras that the people who are currently shooting video on DSLRS or have 35mm adapters fitted to their HDV cameras and most of these people seem to use stills glass.
I believe the first feature shot on a mobile phone was made a few years ago (EDIT: I've just noticed John has mentioned it).
