Megapixel camera phone on sale
Update (2003-06-16): ZDNet Mobile Japan writes about the new J-SH53. See the image samples below.
Japan’s J-Phone says that the J-SH53 by Sharp, which comes with a built-in CCD mobile camera capable of photographing 1 million effective pixels, will be available in stores from May 22nd, making it the world’s first true megapixel-class mobile handset to be commercially available.
It isn’t available yet at the J-Phone Online Shop though. Also, I only did find announcements for it so far on the Sharp as well as on the J-Phone site.
Anyway, more on the characteristics of the J-SH53 in english here.
“The J-SH53 may not be in the average tokyoites price range but in the end you get what you pay for (20,000yen – 30,000yen.)”, according to x.
This is approximatively between 150 and 220 Euro, or 220 and 330 Swiss Francs. Which looks rather cheap to me.
