CCD Camera Phones

Were there any camera phones that use a CCD sensor rather than a CMOS?

All the megapixels in the world done mean a thing if the lens and the sensor are not high quality.

If you compare the MPX220 1.3 mp CMOS camera to the SE S710A 1.3 mp CCD camera there is no comparison.

Aside from the s710a are any other manufacturers planing on putting together a phone with a CCD camera to compete with the s710a?

The reason I ask is that I like all the features on the Sony-ericsson, but I do not like their interface. I may stand alone on this fact but I prefer the motorola interface, especially when it comes to their predictive text input and various menu navigation.

I am trying out the s710a for a few days and I have decided they...

It's not as simple as CCD vs. CMOS.

While CCDs generally means high quality, CMOS does not necessarily mean low-quality. There is a huge variation in CMOS quality.

The best CMOS sensors can even outperform most CCDs - in fact, Canon's top-of-the-line DSLRs (like the EOS-1Ds) use CMOS sensors, and Nokia's new top-of-the-line N90 camera phone uses a CMOS sensor.

CMOS sensors also have the benefit of lower power consumption compared to CCD, so I suspect you will see more phones with high-quality CMOS instead of CCD going forward.
