We might soon have a hard time distinguishing between camera phones and phone cameras. Next week Panasonic will be unveiling a new Lumix brand cell phone, a brand previously reserved for digital cameras. According to the pre-announcement press release, the phone will have a 13 megapixel CMOS sensor, a microSDHC slot, Wi-Fi capabilities, and a 3.3 inch LCD screen.
As large CMOS sensors and high quality extendable lenses start moving into cell phones, there won’t be much (if anything) separating them from compact cameras. Keep your eye on this dedicated website Panasonic set up recently. The full announcement will come on October 5th.
