Samsung to sell 10-megapixel camera phone

Samsung Electronics will sell a 10-megapixel camera phone in South Korea.

Samsung Electronics will put a 10-megapixel camera phone on the market in South Korea shortly. The phone was first shown at the Cebit exhibition in Germany in March this year and was originally due on the market in the second quarter.

Like some of the company's previous phones the SCH-B600 is styled to look like a conventional digital still camera from one side and a bar-type cell phone from the other side. It has a 3X optical zoom lens like those typically found in digital still cameras, auto focus, manual focus, continuous and time-delay picture taking and a flash.

Other features include a tuner for South Korea's TU Media satellite multimedia service, Bluetooth and MP3 player, business card reader and TV-output.

It will cost 900,000 won (AUD$1,260) in South Korea and Samsung said won't be selling it in other markets.

The phone is the latest in a line of high megapixel camera phones from Samsung. The company launched a 5-megapixel camera phone in October 2004, a 7-megapixel phone in July 2005 and an 8-megapixel model in November last year.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
