Samsung Techwin's incredible shrinking cellphone camera

Cellphone cameras are already pretty darn small but, not one to be easily satisfied, Samsung Techwin has gone and shunk that module even smaller, cramming a complete camera with autofocus and 3x optical zoom into a 9mm thick package. Samsung Techwin also says the module will consume less power and provide more durability than other camera modules while still offering "digital camera-like quality" -- which digital camera, exactly, it didn't say. In any event, it looks like these are going to be just about everywhere in the not-too-distant future, with Samsung set to build a new plant to produce 'em at a rate of 10 million units per month by 2007.
