UPDATED Audiovox on Friday announced the CDM-8910, a new CDMA phone with VGA camera and flash. Additional features include speakerphone and Java or BREW (carrier-dependent). Audiovox has retracted its initial press release which incorrectly stated the CDM-8910 included a megapixel camera.

2. I talked with several top Audiovox reps multiple times at CES, each time talking about the 8910 being a megapixel phone. Again, everyone was quite clear about it.
3. Audiovox on Tuesday informed me that they had made a mistake, and the 8910 was, in fact, not a megapixel camera phone. Then there was even more confusion... and finally, once I was satisfied that I had the real (new) info, i updated the article as you now see it.
But don't despair, there is still a megapixel phone in the wor...
