Lose your picture phone before flying to Saudi-Arabia

In the weird, but seemingly true, news department this Friday: Saudi Arabia will confiscate camera phones at the airport (via Picturephoning):

I spoke to someone in the Embassy's information office and she checked with another person to make sure.

I was told camera phones are confiscated from visitors flying into Saudi Arabia as part of the customs process. I was also told confiscated phones won't be returned when visitors leave the country.

So, if you have a camera phone and you're going to Saudi Arabia, leave the phone at home or get a camera-less phone for the trip.

Is this a religious thing? Why can't people bring camera phones?
