I snapped this with a 2MP iPhone, BTW, you use what you have available when the opportunity presents itself. Okay, I suppose it's not professional-quality, and I realize that I have a lot to learn, but it's one of my favourite photos.

I snapped this with a 2MP iPhone...

Great!  All you need is one of these and an EF 24-70mm f/2.8L and you'll be good to go!   :P
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

Nice photo

I think that you could post process this photo very nicely to lighten up the eyes, decrease shadows, and sharpen it a little, such that it would make a excellent large print, at least 8 X 10.

"The best camera is the one that's with you"

Not only is that a great saying... it's actually a book now (about iPhone photography)  and you can check it out: http://www.amazon.com/Best-Camera-One-Thats-You/dp/0321684788

Just to add more thought, I think there is a lot to be learned from using ANY camera (point and shoot, smartphone...etc). For example, using an iPhone camera can assist in learning to create an interesting composition... a skill that can transfer with you no matter what camera you use. Also, if you don't use the zoom feature when using a smartphone camera, you are on your feet moving around trying to frame a shot... something that relates to using primes and composing shots that way. Don't forget lighting. While each camera body and lens combination can yield different tolerances for low-light capturing capabilities, any camera (specially the less advanced sensors on a smartphone camera, p&s... etc.) will quickly show you its limitations. Something that can assist you when the time comes to building a kit based around your needs. (If you primarily shoot wildlife and outdoors, you might not need the fast lenses that are needed for something like an indoor wedding or a concert).
