You Can Do What!? With a Smartphone!?

There are so many angles to these smartphones. We see them sell as phones, personal computes, GPS units, gaming consoles, inducements for banks, ISPs and cellphone networks, hundreds of thousands of applications, weird input devices that know which way is up and of course, they have cameras… Most are a few megapixels. Now that may change. A manufacturer of cameras has now produced a smartphone model with 14 megapixels!

The mind boggles. What use is a 14 Mpixel camera on a smartphone with a few thousand pixels? I don’t know but someone must want it. They are selling them through one of the biggest ISPs/Communication companies in China. It will sell. In quantity. Perhaps the units will phone home the pix or save them until docked…

What next???

    One thing that’s more important than the number of pixels a camera has is the lens. I never hear any mention of the lens or its capabilities/limitations.
