Yesterday, Eastman Kodak President Antonio Perez announced that it is developing new 5-megapixel CMOS sensors for digital cameras. The new sensors will also be able to fit into mobile phones, and Perez stated that Kodak will develop a camera phone jointly with Motorola. The two companies first announced plans to work together in January 2006. This new information shows that they have made progress. Motorola and Kodak are planning to have the camera phone ready near the end of the year.

Excellent...

Kodak, the maker of the worst digital cameras on the market; teaming up with Motorola, the maker of the buggiest handsets in the world.

This should be good.

Until then, I'm not impresses
I'm impressed by how well you spell "impressed."

It's about time...

It only took them almost a year and a half to announce a product. And the end of the year means that we'll probably see it in 2008 a full 2 years after they announced that they'll be working together. That seems like an eternity in mobile phone development. And considering that Samsung and LG have had camera phones with over 5 megapixels for a while now, Motorola needs to catch up.

Digital Camera/ MP3 Player/ Phone

Just a thought:
Think about being able to take DC quality pictures and send them SMS/Email instantly. Larger memory card would be a must. Faster write speeds equal faster shutter speeds. Faster processor would make for a fun device.
The same device will replace my IPOD?
Mobile Internet access?
Don't forget it still makes phone calls.
Very soon your laptop will be replaced by the same device that replaced your DC/MP3 player/ Phone.
Again just a thought.
