Japanese cellular carrier KDDI Corp. has put on sale what it says is the first mobile phone in the world with an embedded 3Megapixel resolution digital camera. The announcement came almost a year to the day since the first megapixel-class mobiles went on sale in Japan and around six months after the first 2Megapixel models hit shelves.
The A5406CA is manufactured by Casio, which also produced the first 2Megapixel handset. Features include a 2.3in TFT display with 240 pixel by 320 pixel (QVGA) resolution, a 1.1in sub display, a USB (Universal Serial Bus) cradle to allow for easy transfer of images and video files to a PC, a 12.8Mbyte internal data folder and a slot for
mini SD cards. The bad news is, it won’t go on sale overseas.
