LG just officially announced to us the successor of the Viewty, the KC910. It is an all-in-one multimedia phone, sporting 8-megapixel camera, Dolby sound for music, and DivX and XviD support for video playback. At 14mm thickness, LG announces the KC910 as the slimmest 8MP phone on the market. It has Xenon flash, Schneider-Kreuznach lens, ISO up to 1600 and can capture video in VGA resolution at 30fps and in QVGA at up to 120fps for slow motion effect. Thanks to a built-in GPS, the photos can be geo tagged with the coordinates of the place they are taken at. Other camera features include option for manual focus, face, smile and blink detection and digital image stabilizer. The KC910 is a quad-band GSM with support for HSDPA 7.2 Mbps, has Bluetooth 2.0, Wi-Fi, microSD slot for up to 8GB of memory, 3-inch WQVGA 240x400 touch display and TV-out for watching images or videos on larger screen. There is no information if it will run on the same interface as the Viewty and the KF700, or on a new one. LG says that it will come to the market in October of this year.

Whats the point of an 8 Megapixel camera if your screen is only 400 x 240 pixels...

Well, actually there's no point of having 8 MP yet. Mobile phones have way to little "camera-hardware" to get high-res pictures like a "real" camera with 8MP. The pictures on this phone will be as good as if it was 5 MP. But it looks nice on the paper though ;)

um dude. i dont know about ya'll but first off camera's dont have insurance on them like phones do. if you break a camera it's a long process to get it fixed. when you're in the mosh pit and you wanna take a video of your favorite bands playing you dont want a fucking camera haning around your neck. whip your your phone and snag a vid or pic. or if you're skating and you happen to be video taping someone varial fliping off of the stairs at school you can video tape it. get real dude. the camera is a nice add on. and you're retarded if you think someone is going to lug a caear around with them as well as a cell phone. both in one.

Yea, I understand that you will upload your photos to the PC. And I get that the camera can be good. But it seems silly that the successor to the Viewty wouldnt have an upgraded screen. Its not too bad, but I am thinking about the HTC T-Diamond. 2.8 inch screen, 640 x 480 resoultion...

HTC TouchDiamond? Are you big on S&M or something? I will never buy an HTC phone again until they start making products that last a couple months without complete frustration. I'm either going back to LG, Nokia, or Apple next time.

megapixels dont mean crap, give us optical zoom!

dont zoom then? why do you need to zoom - just crop the image to size if you want a tighter range. You've got 8MP to play with. You simply can't fit optical zoom in a phone and have good quality photos at all ranges. The optics in compact lenses are terrible which is why most cameras are fixed zoom. optical zoom just sucks more battery life, makes the phone thicker, means you have worse optics. And you're wrong when you say digital zoom degrades quality. digital zoom is just lowering the effective image size. So if you zoom in a bit the image will be smaller and only 5MP. Same quality as before just slightly smaller image. It doesn't keep it 8MP size and zoom in by dithering. Same can be achieved by cropping.

trust me... digital zoom does degrade quality. When you use a digital zoom it simply enlarges the image...Doesn't magnify the lenses at all. Its like on paint when you get a small image and make it bigger.. It becomes really bad quality and all pixely and lame.
