OmniVision unveils "world's first" 1/4-inch 2-megapixel CMOS sensor with autofocus

OmniVision Technologies has been showing what it claims to be the world's first 1/4-inch 2-megapixel CMOS image sensor with integrated autofocus at 3GSM, and needless to say, the crowd is 50 people deep just to look at the little thing. The OV2645, as the sensor is affectionately known, uses a microcontroller to operate the autofocus motors, and is supposedly 30% smaller than any existing solutions. We're sure we'll be seeing these modules in cellphones sooner rather than later, but so far no manufacturing agreements are known.
