The Sony Xperia Z can take 999 pictures in 68 seconds
Admit it. During the launch of the BlackBerry Z10, you forgot all about the handset that made people fall in love with it during CES. But now that the all-touch BlackBerry 10 model has been out setting company records in the U.K. and Canada, and won't hit the U.S. until next month, you can start thinking once again about the Sony Xperia Z. While some conspiracy nuts see a pattern with the letter "Z" as part of each phone's name (look at the picture of that BlackBerry Z10 on the Grassy Knoll), we are talking about two distinctly different models here.

The Sony Xperia Z won over the hardened attendees of CES with a combination of looks and features. That 5 inch FHD screen produces a pixel density of 441ppi which ties a number of devices with the top pixel density available, at least until the HTC One and its 468ppi is released. Sony did a masterful job of showing off the waterproofing on the phone with an automatic dunk test.

The 13.1MP Exmor RS camera on back of the unit is said by the Japanese manufacturer, to be able to take an unlimited number of 9MP images at a rate of 10 per second. But the video below shows that an amazing 999 pictures can be taken in just 68 seconds. Sure, it is not a moving subject, and who is ever going to need to take 999 pictures in a minute and 8 seconds? But if you ever did need to do such a thing, you'll know which smartphone to buy.
