View Full Version : Sony Ericsson 8.1-megapixel phone

09-26-2008, 08:21 PM
Many people have ditched their point-and-shoot digital camera for a camera phone -- but those who pick up the upcoming Sony Ericsson (http://www.sonyericsson.com/cws/products/mobilephones/overview/c905) C905 (http://www.sonyericsson.com/cws/products/mobilephones/overview/c905) won’t have to trade quality for convenience.
Due out in late 2008 or early 2009, North America’s first 8.1-megapixel camera phone packs all the features you’d expect from a standalone digital camera, including Xenon flash, auto-focus, image stabilizer and face detection. Plus, after you take a photo or shoot a video you can immediately upload it to your favorite blog or social networking site using GSM/GPRS, EDGE or 3G (HSDPA) cellphone networks.

The C905 is also no slouch in other departments. It houses built-in GPS, FM radio, stereo Bluetooth, and more. Oh, and did we mention it makes phone calls, too? No price, carrier or exact launch date have been confirmed just yet.

I wonder if its a "quality" 8.1 megs. I've seen some cams rated fairly high in resolution take some lousy pics at that size.

take some lousy pics at that size. specially with no auto-focus.......:smile:

but m pretty sure....that's more than with a cyber shot feature of SE....
