It’s no secret that we are in a digital wireless technology boom and everyday new camera phone technological advancement is on the rise. For approximately six years now, the camera phone technology has been available in the U.S. to consumers nationwide. Unfortunately, image quality and image storage space have always been an issue. Earlier this year, Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., the brainchild of camera phones, reached another milestone by introducing a new 10 million-pixel (megapixel) mobile phone the Samsung SCH B600. The new Samsung 10 megapixel cell phone is currently the highest picture resolution for a camera phone ever made. Apparently it even outshines most mid-end digital cameras on the market, which have lower resolutions (between 3 and 8 megapixels).
Why Own a Samsung B600?
Samsung’s B600 sets itself apart from its previous megapixel camera phones by combining the mobile TV capability (in Satellite standard) with the 10 megapixel camera. The B600 also comes with an LED autofocus feature that enables the user to capture clear crisp photos, even taken in dark surroundings.
Its high color TFT-LCD is capable of reproducing 16 million colors, practically any color found in nature. Users can also watch live TV in crisp picture via Satellite DMB.
It also supports external memory (MMCmicro) in addition to its internal memory. By doing so, it supports a TV-out function that connects the phone to a TV to view still or motion pictures.
Availability / Cost
The Samsung 10 megapixel camera phone is expected to cost more than $318 US and will be on the market this fall.
Where does the Samsung B600 stand?
With the Godzilla of camera phones coming on the market this fall, Sony and other companies have a lot of catching up to do if they intend to battle with the now obviously potentially talented rival, one of Samsung’s latest toys, the spanking Samsung 10 megapixel camera phone.
