Soon you may not be able to blame your crappy cameraphone pics on the quality of your handset's imaging equipment, thanks to a tiny new dual-axis gyroscope built using MEMS technology that will be employed for image stabilization on future, multi-megapixel phones. Built by San Jose's InvenSense Corp., the IDG-1000 is a single-chip silicon device as small as a baby's fingernail, or five times smaller than competing solutions based on so-called piezo-type technology. Volume shipments of the new chip are scheduled to begin this fall, so don't be surprised if you see one incorporated into Samsung or LG's next entrant into the ongoing battle for cameraphone resolution supremacy.
