FCC approved a Samsung Pixon with AT&T-friendly 3G
As a whole, the US market is really short on cameraphones, especially in comparison with the European and the Asian ones. The first 5-megapixel phones offered by the carriers have appeared just recently and last weeks’ news give hope that the 8-megapixel era is about to begin.

The first evidence for this were the spy photos of the Samsung Memoir, which looks like it’s going to be offered by T-Mobile. Now, it is AT&T fans’ turn to cross their fingers, since a version of the Samsung Pixon (knows as M8800L), supporting the 3G bands of the carrier (850/1900 MHz) has been approved by the FCC. There is no information if it is improved (the Memoir seems to have a Xenon flash) yet. However, this should not worry the users, since this phone will be a giant step forwards for cameraphone fans… if, of course, it becomes available.
