Verizon’s Megapixel CamPhone


Engadget reports that Sprint PCS has finally stepped up to the plate and lined up the first 1mp+ camera phone to make it to the US market, the Audiovox PM-8920.

The phone features 1.3 megapixel camera, 1.12 x 1.4-inch 128 160 pixel 260,000 color display, and an airplane mode (so you can play phone games and not interfere with plane s avionics). According to some reports, such as those on SprintUsers.com, the PM-8920 is manufactured by the South Korean company Pantech & Curitel, not Audiovox/Toshiba. Audiovox is the distributor.

Of couse in more advanced civilizations, 2 Megapixels and even 3 Megapixels are available. Vodafone in Japan is offering the Sharp V602SH that features a two megapixel camera with a CCD sensor, a 2x optical zoom and autofocus, for example.
