Interesting idea, since I have a bin full left over from my office days.

I haven't got a smartphone, but I wonder if the phone's camera be triggered remotely, or if it has a time delay? Otherwise what's the point of "tripod" mounting it anyway?

Um, yes.  There will be an app for that.  I bet there's one that trips the shutter when it detects motion too.  Plus it does video.

same use you'd use a tripod with any other camera, steadiness at low shutter speeds, smooth panning in video mode.

You can fire the shutter remotely, with an App, I can use my iPad to view the iPhone's screen and remotely take photos with it and vice versa. And many apps have timer delays also.
