Sony is not the number one in professional camera department. Not by a long shot. That position was held by Canon for a long time, and now Nikon is in front with it`s D3/D3x/D700 cameras.
AND NO, 12 mpx in a small sensor is not great, it`s crap. You`ll just get a crappy noisy image.
Google that and you`ll see what i`m talking about.
And as an addition, looking at all phone makers... only Sony is at the foremost in camera technologies, be it in imagers or in signal processing. For the information of all... Sony is an undisputed leader in Professional and Broadcast video cameras. Sony video cameras are used by leading broadcasters and news bureaus worldwide. Sony name is synonymous to professional and broadcast cameras. So, no worries about this miniature IMX060PQ, a 1/2.5 CMOS image sensor from the Exmor series that, apparently, has the industry’s highest Megapixel count: 12.25 MP, Sony knows what it is doing.
Photographer, 01 Mar 2009I cant see how a tiny 12mp pin hole camera is going to compete with any dedicated digital came... moreIt's a marketing gimmick and a race for attention. At this moment in time, almost all technologies can be done by almost any phone manufacturer... AND THAT LEAVES THE CAMERA THAT IS YET UNEXPLORED AND YET TO BE CONTESTED. SE had announced a 12 Megapixel phone, Samsung is under development of the same , LG can do it anytime... SADLY, NOKIA LAGS BEHIND. That is the reason why so much attention is focused on the camera because that is one field that is still open for competition... luckily SE had done it first... as always, Sony always make it a point to be "like no other".
how about this phone from se isnt a good device to buy but this would be a litle expensive

riv, 01 Mar 2009i dnt c ur nokia coming out wit a gud winMo device or do u?Was that at me? If so, NO i dont see NOKIA coming out with a WinMo, why should they anyway? They have Symbian S60, an OS that is built from the ground up for mobiles, that has proven to be highly stable,functional, and with it NOKIA proved that not all smartphones should be expensive and aimed at business but also must be aimed at tech savvy youngsters.
no 1 mobile phone launched by se in the history of telecommunication!
12mpix. unbelievable mindblowing!

What do u ppl say about my suggestion that GSMARENA should include an extra factor in the voting results along with design, features, n performance, namely PRICE?
It could be something like how much the users think the design, features, n performance is worthy of such a price tag!
