Replying to: CCD Camera Phones by notacop
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.
