Samsung's M8800 Pixon Mobile Phone Hits, With 8-Megapixel Autofocus Camera

This is Samsung's promo video for the upcoming M8800 mobile phone (aka Pixon) with 8-megapixel camera. In fact it looks very much like a compact camera from the rear, and its 3.2-inch screen bears the same TouchWiz interface as the Omnia. That screen is a 400 x 240 pixel touchscreen with touch keyboard and handwriting recognition, and the phone has AGPS, accelerometer and FM radio. Read on for hands-on photos and full specs.
