Samsung Rolls Out an 8Mpix Camera Phone: The Pixon
Samsung just announced the new Pixon, a full touch 8 Mpix camera phone. Our new mobile phone is 13.8 mm thin and features a 3.2’’ WQVGA full touch screen, an 8 Mpix camera with a 16x digital zoom, music player (MP3, AAC, e-AAC+, WMA), FM radio, DNSe, Bluetooth, and an internal memory of 200MB (Micro SD card compatible).
The new Pixon will be available in mid-October first in France in. No word on price.
Seoul, Korea, September 29, 2008 – Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., a leading provider of telecom systems and mobile phones, today unveiled the very much anticipated full touch 8-megapixel cameral phone Samsung Pixon. The phone will available in October to consumers who want to easily capture and share life’s unexpected moments anytime, anywhere they desire.
Ever seen something and thought, “if only I had my camera with me”? Many people experience those perfect moments that cry out to be captured – a beautiful, astonishing, indescribable or unexpected moment that should be kept and be shared with friends and loved ones. Capturing those moments has never been easy simply because people don’t walk around with their cameras on all the time.
Missing those perfect moments will become a thing of the past thanks to the new Samsung Pixon.
Photos featuring friends and family doing funny things or having funny things done to them, bumping unexpectedly into a celebrity or a pet doing something hilarious were all moments which were difficult to capture before because getting a camera out and switched on always took so long. Now all of these will be wonderfully easy to capture because the Samsung Pixon is as good a camera as a standalone camera.
Being the world’s slimmest full-touch 8-megapixel camera phone, the Samsung Pixon boasts a 13.8mm slim design as well as many other great features. Not only does the outside look just like an actual camera, the Samsung Pixon also takes pictures like one with its x16 digital zoom, auto-focus, fast-shutter, face detection and geo-tagging.
Yet, the Samsung Pixon is even better than an actual camera as it also comes with a 3.2 inch full-touch screen and integrated Photo Browser which allows fantastically easy photo sharing and viewing.
The Samsung Pixon will completely satisfy those who are tired of camera-phones which look like cameras but have only a passing resemblance to a camera’s functions.
Geesung Choi, President of the Samsung Telecommunications Business, said Samsung is a company which constantly tries to innovate to improve consumers’ lives, to make things easier and more fun.
“Now everyone will be able to ‘get their pics on’ so much more quickly and easily. For the first time you will have a camera on your phone capable of delivering the quality of image of a regular camera. The big benefit is not just the ease with which people will now be able to capture and share camera-phone shots, but the quality of those shots when taken,” President Choi added.
The Samsung Pixon will be available first in France in mid-October and soon to be available in most of European countries and Asian countries.
The official www.thephotographicadventuresofnickturpin.com will open on Oct.2.
