Sony announces a 12-megapixel camera module
Do you remember that a week ago, Ericsson announced their future plans, which involved 12-megapixel phones until 2012? Maybe some of you still doubt it. Well, do not, because Sony announced three Exmor (CMOS) modules for mobile cameras, which will respectively shoot at 5, 8 and 12 megapixels. What’s interesting is that the release date of the last one is set for March, next year. Hm, we’ll see a 12MP phone no later than 2009?

There’s more, in the shown specs we noticed, that all three of the Exmor modules are going to support Full HD video capture, which also matches Ericsson’s plans. Hey, we just got even more impatient!
