Kodak, Motorola Developing 5-Megapixel Camera Phone
May 22, 2007, 11:10 AM by (staff)
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.
Hands-On: Bullitt's Kodak Phone
Bullitt made an Android smartphone with Kodak's name on it. That's almost all there is to say about this handset, but we'll squeeze out a few more words for you in this hands-on report.
Hands On with the Kodak Ektra
Bullitt Group is back with another Kodak-branded smartphone and believes it has a better combination of form, features, and functionality in the Ektra. The Ektra clearly taps into the nostalgia factor thanks to its resemblance to older cameras.
Hands On with Panasonic's Phone Camera
Panasonic's Lumix phone is just as much camera as phone, much in the same vein as Samsung's Galaxy Camera series. It pairs an Android phone with a 20-megapixel Lumix camera with a massive sensor and extending multi-element lens for the kind of photo quality you don't find in most camera phones.
Kodak Ektra Is More Camera Than Phone
Bullitt Group today announced the Kodak Ektra, an Android smartphone that focuses on providing a steady camera experience. Bullitt is the company behind CAT phones and made another Kodak-branded phone earlier this year.
This should be good.
Needs an optical zoom
I bet you will be impressed soon enough.
Such as yes/no: U.S. phone???
yes/no: 3G for AT&T (Screw Verizon!!!)
Personally, I'd be shocked if it was quad-band GSM with 3.6 HSDPA, I really, really wo...
Boy, are they slow?!!
Made with Carl Zeiss Lens
American companies is so far behind with that stuff.
I bet japan is even WAY WAY ahead of us!!
Get with it Kodak and Motorola or you are't going to be around!
It's about time...
Digital Camera/ MP3 Player/ Phone
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.
