Sony cellphone will have 8.1 MP camera

New cellphones announced by Sony-Ericsson for release in the last quarter of the year include the company’s most advanced camera phone, with 8.1-megapixel resolution, which was better than you could get in a non-phone camera not too long ago.

The camera phone, called the Cyber-shot C905, is the company’s first slider in the Cyber-shot line and will be available in two worldphone versions. It’s equipped with Wi-Fi and DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) certification for wireless home networking. The C905c version is a quadband GSM/EDGE model operating in the 850/1900MHz US bands and foreign 900/1900MHz bands. The C905a adds W-CDMA HSDPA operation in the US 850/1900MHz bands and foreign 2100MHz bands.

The C905 looks like a camera when closed and includes a Xenon strobe light. It will be available in three colors. Pricing was not announced.

Features include face-detection auto-focus, GPS, 2.4-inch scratch-resistant glass display and included 2GB Memory Stick Micro memory card. Using DLNA-certified Wi-Fi, users can send photos wirelessly to DLNA-certified PCs, TVs and other devices. Other features include stereo Bluetooth and Sony’s BestPic to quickly select the best of multiple pictures taken in rapid succession. (info from TWICE)
