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’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
