Android's lack of screenshot

Why do you suppose that Android doesn't allow for taking screenshots without your phone being rooted? I had an iPhone and that's definitely one thing that I miss about it. I wonder what Google's thinking is behind that decision? I have no intention of rooting my phone as I don't have any reason to do so. Any ideas?

:smileysad: Yeah, I had already saw that one but I was wanting to be able to take them from the phone itself, you know what I'm saying? Like with the iPhone, I could press and hold the sleep button and then hit the home button and it took a screenshot and saved it in the pictures folder. It really made it nice for when you're trying to show someone what the screen should look like when you're trying to help them online or whatever. Nothing major, I just wish it would have been built-in.
