The utter ubiquity of cams in handsets these days illustrates that sensors tend to travel in packs: first it was VGA, then 1.3 megapixels, then 2, 3.2, and 5. So what's the deal with 4? We were fully prepared to overlook it entirely, call it a dead issue, and be satisfied with the 3.2 and 5 megapixel phones on the market, but Russia's Voxtel bucked the trend recently with its W740 -- and now this here IP1000 from CECT is hopping on the bandwagon. The Chinese device adds a QVGA touch screen, decent media support, and a fabulous flower pattern (vaguely reminiscent of a few Nokias we've seen) for a pretty tight package. No word on availability, but as with oh-so-many Asian handsets we've seen, a press photo is as close as most of us will ever get to actually using one anyway.
