Samsung 10-megapixel camera phone

Samsungschb600Man, those folks in Korea have been busy! Samsung’s 10-megapixel SCH-B600 camera phone, announced in the spring, appeared on Korean store shelves today bearing a whopping $950 sale price. The phone is stuffed with features like mobile TV (via DMB), Bluetooth, MMCmicro card slot, TV-out capabilities, MP3 player, and business card reader. And as if a 10 megapixels weren’t impressive enough, the camera also includes 3x optical and 5x digital zoom, LED autofocus, and flash. It can also record QVGA video between 15-30 frames per second. (I can’t imagine what all of this does to battery life.)

Outstanding features, to be sure, but I think convergence devices are starting to get out of hand. 10 megapixels!? Regular digital cameras are barely up to that and they still can’t play MP3s.
