Sony Ericsson to concentrate upon cameraphones in the U.S.
Who is complaining about the lack of camera phones in the States? According to Reuters, GSM users should not, since Sony Ericsson plans to work upon delivering a high-end shooting solution in the second quarter of the year. As you might guess, this would be the 8-megapixel slider, the C905, which is said to see the light of day with either AT&T or T-Mobile. As Jon Mulder, head of product marketing at the company’s N.A. division, estimates, the device will be offered at a price ranging from $199 to $249 after subsidies. In our view, the C905 will surely be warmly welcomed. It would be really nice seeing it with T-Mobile too, but looking at their current catalogue (they don’t seem like big fans of Sony Ericsson), the phone will probably go to AT&T.

it would be cool for ATT to get this. Here in the us we do need more 8mp phones, since we currently only have one, Samsung Memoir.

Cellphones don't really need 8MP cameras. You might as well buy a cheap digital camera then. But, why should T-Mobile get this phone? Can't AT&T get some high megapixel camera love?

No they don't need them, but to me it is kinda cool to have a decent digital camera on your cellphone and dont have to have a digital camera. Of course cellphones haven't caught up to a real digital camera, but there are a few that are good competitors. AT&T does need better camera phones, they still dont have 5mp yet.

IMO, AT&T should've been able to have at least gotten the Nokia N95 US phone to start the high megapixel camera phone race. Or even the N96.
