Hitachi 720p Phone Debuts

KDDI unveiled its summer 2009 roster of phones and headlined it with one of the most advanced video-capable phones available. The Hitachi Hi-Vision Cam Wooo has a 5-megapixel camera capable of not only playing but shooting 720p video with true 3X optical zoom, autofocus and image stabilization. It records at a relatively high 9Mbps bitrate and can handle up to an hour of continuous shooting. An HDMI output similarly provides full-resolutino viewing, and a microSDHC slot provides the bulk of storage: an 8GB card can take 2 hours of video at maximum quality.

The 3G flip phone has a 3-inch, 854x480 display that can view 480p at native resolution and has typical music playback on top of its video features. About 500MB of memory is built-in to give basic storage outside of the card slot. KDDI starts selling the phone in its native Japan on June 24th; Hitachi doesn't have plans to export the Hi-Vision to the US. [via Impress]
