Sony Ericsson K850 with a digital camera

The Sony Ericsson K850i is one of the best camera phones on the market today. Not only does it offer 5 megapixel resolution, it also offers auto-focus, all manner of automatic and manual aids for capturing the perfect picture, and comes complete with Sony's seal of approval courtesy of its highly-respected CyberShhot brand.
At the end of the day, though, it is still just a camera phone, which begs the question: just how well does a camera phone compare with a dedicated digital camera?

Comparing the Sony Ericsson K850i with a Nokion D40

Fortunately, the Unofficial Sony Ericsson Blog (USEB) has a done a sterling job in comparing and contrasting a Sony Ericsson K850 with a Nikon D40, as well as describing in great detail the various technicalities that
prevent a camera phone from measuring up with a dedicated digital camera. However, as should hopefully be obvious from the picture above, it's not really a fair comparison. The Nikon D40 is hardly your average point and shoot digital camera, and while it may have roughly the same amount of megapixellage (6 megapixels for the D40 compared with 5 megapixels for the K850), as you can see from the pic below, the D40's sensor is 16 times bigger than the K850's!

What the review does show, though, is how far camera phones have come. The shot below, for example, is better than anything my old point and shoot Fuji could have come up with. Click on the thumbnailed pics over at USEB, and you'll see full size examples taken from the K850 in all manner of different locations and lighting. Not a patch on the Nikon D40's photos, for sure, but would you have believed they'd come from a camera phone just a few years ago?

Launch of Palm Centro

Palm Centro hits the magical one million mark.
Palm's miniscule and wallet-friendly Centro has managed to reach one million units sold since its launch last September. It got its legs working as Sprint and AT&T's gateway smartphone at that fantastic $99 pricepoint, and now it's making a bid for world domination in major markets in Europe and Asia. The one million sales have it nipping at the heels of recent superstar smartphones, the two million plus HTC Touch and the four million plus iPhone, not bad company in the least.

If you've been feeling like you don't have enough Palm in your diet, maybe it's time to look into the Centro for AT&T. Not sure? Then perhaps our handy unboxing and hands-on could help cement your decision. Head on over to Engadget Mobile where it's all going down, big time.

Touchscreen Phone

Another Touchscreen Phone - Mooon+ Concept phone comes with integrated Bluetooth Headset, but wait, this one has a surprise!

Do you have a hard time keeping track of all your gadgets? Wouldn't it be nice if you were able to connect your Bluetooth headset directly to your phone? This way, you're much less likely to lose the handsfree side of the equation.

That seems to the be thinking behind the Mooon+ (the extra "o" is not a typo) cell phone concept. The top section of the phone detaches to reveal a fully functional Bluetooth headset. The rest of the phone seems to borrow some styling cues from the BlackBerry Pearl, but the interface is completely through the touchscreen display.

Seems like it could be a neat idea, but I'd imagine that the premium of the "free" Bluetooth headset will be integrated into the price of the phone as a whole.

Samsung 550i

Fascinating as they are, ultra high-end handsets are not everybody's cup of tea. In fact, the good old mid-range is the bread and butter for every successful mobile phone company, for that's what gets those sales numbers right. As we see it, Samsung i550 might just be the phone to perfectly fit this description. It doesn't yell expensive out loud, but has great all-round functionality and might just become tomorrow's classic.

Key features:

* 2.6" 262K-color TFT display of QVGA resolution

* 3G with HSDPA

* Trackball navigation

* Built-in GPS receiver

* Symbian OS with S60 user interface

* Wi-Fi (Samsung i550w only)

* 3 megapixel camera with auto focus

The PRT puts the automobile on tracks. The vehicles are small, individualized, fully automated (no driver), and fully electric. But rather than coexist with the automobile, the PRT system replaces it. The tracks are
constructed over the existing roadways, thus greatly reducing the cost of construction. Traditional rail systems such as light rail cost as much as $70 million per mile! The PRT would cost only a fraction of that since the bulk of the system (the roads) already exists.

The vehicles are publicly owned and maintained - no private ownership.You don't keep a vehicle idle in your driveway, but rather summon one from the system as needed. When you get to the department store and
exit the vehicle, it automatically moves on to the next pickup location. When you're finished shopping, you simply summon another vehicle, although high traffic locations like stores would tend to maintain a line of ready-to-go vehicles, similar to a taxi line at the airport. If your visit results in a large purchase, a piece of furniture for instance, you would summon a specialized freight vehicle. Alternatively, if you were to purchase the product from home, the store would deliver the product directly to your doorstep via an unmanned PRT vehicle.
