Sony DSC-N2 Revealed

The reference point for sensor quality in point-and-shoot cameras was just recently set at 7 megapixels, but imminent camera releases promise to push this much further to 10 megapixels. Sony's upcoming DSC-N2 is a prime example of this, as discovered by forum members of the Chinese website PCOnline. Despite a small frame, the N2 improves over its N1 predecessor's already-sharp 8 megapixel sensor while boosting its ISO sensitivity from 800 to 1000. Alternate colors (such as the metallic pink shown here) are also due to appear. Features are otherwise unchanged but still quite capable: a 3-inch touchscreen and 26MB of internal memory suit this camera to the impromptu photography point-and-shoot models are designed for. There is no word on pricing or availability yet; a recent $50 discount on the N1 suggests that its replacement will ship soon for $450.
