Samsung has unveiled the very first camera phone with 10 megapixels! Yes, count your fingers, 10 MP. Nokiaâ€™s flagship camera phone, the N95, has a measly 5MP.
Samsung said its newest model, the SCH-B600, offers the same level of picture-taking sophistication that a 10-megapixel digital camera offers (Really? Weâ€™ll see). It has 3x optical zoom and 5x digital zoom (Why donâ€™t they just do away with the digital zoom altogether?). Itâ€™s got autofocus too, and a flash unit.
The B600 also supports white balance, manual focus, continuous picture-taking, and interval picture-taking functions. It shoots and plays movies (on the TV too) and plays mp3s.
Itâ€™s priced at about $900, enough to buy you a digital SLR camera and a good mobile phone.
