We didn't doubt it for a second (okay, maybe one
second), but Sony's so-called Idou
is for real. Though, we wouldn't go memorizing that name or anything, 'cause SE has plans to change it to something more commercial before summer. At any rate, the touchscreen-heavy handset -- which will run Symbian Foundation at launch -- does indeed sport a 12.1 megapixel shooter (which was hinted at last November
), which sort of makes the also-just-official Samsung Memoir
seem a bit dated already. It's funny too, as the only dozen megapixeler we were actually expecting at this show
Samsung. We're still waiting on the minutiae, but we do know that it will pack a 3.5-inch panel (640 x 320 resolution; no word on capacitive or resistive) and "full media consumption," a phrase we're still struggling to digest. More as we get it!
