Samsung 10-Megapixel Phone

Point-and-shoot cameras are only now reaching the 10-megapixel mark in higher-end models, but Samsung today has already set the bar equally high for cellphones. The B600 is the only phone to have a 10-megapixel camera sensor, giving it the same sharpness as even the best compact cameras. It also refuses to sacrifice zoom quality, as is almost always the case with cellphone lenses: the B600 has a 3X optical zoom that can focus properly on a distant subject. The new handset's 2.2-inch LCD is also one of the few displays of its kind to display a full 16.7 million colors -- making this phone's image previews more accurate than even some professional cameras.

Samsung has not ignored the other features of the phone in the process. For its native Korean market, the B600 has built-in mobile TV support for watching live video. Bluetooth, EVDO broadband, and AAC/MP3 music playback are also standard features. The only limitation to the phone is its availability. Targeted at Korea, the current form of the B600 is currently shipping to that country alone. Nonetheless, those who can justify the $900 US equivalent price will have one of the most feature-rich phones of any country. Click through for additional photos.

    B600 phone network

    It's a CDMA phone, unfortunately (EVDO works on CDMA networks - EDGE is the rough equivalent for GSM).
