Nokia Predicts Camera Phones Will Overtake Digital Cameras
Jan 22, 2002, 1:42 PM by (staff)
Nokia today predicted that sales of mobile phones equipped with a camera will outpace those of digital cameras in a few years as multimedia messaging services take off. The claim was made by Nokia's head of mobile phones Matti Alahuhta in a speech at the Comdex fair in Sweeden today. Key to this trend will be multimedia messaging (MMS), a technology that makes sending messages with photos and music as easy as sending text messages. Nokia will start selling its first MMS camera phone, the 7650, in Europe later this year. Rival Ercisson has been selling the MMS-capable T68 for some time.
