Only 12 million pixels? Sigh...

MWC Sony Ericsson has continued its megapixel ramp-up with the launch of a 12.1Mp cameraphone called Idou.

Sony Ericsson's Idou: 12Mp sensor

The super snapper phone is the first of what SE’s dubbed its “Entertainment Unlimited” handset range. Phones in this category – and yes, more are planned – aim to offer most of the best phone features currently available on a single device.

Idou has a 3.5in, 16:9 ratio display that allows users to crop, rotate and manipulate images with the touch of a finger. The rear-mounted camera’s supported by an Xenon flash.

Wi-Fi, GPS and HSDPA are all on-board

SE’s keeping many of the phone’s non-camera features a secret, for now at least. However, the firm did tell Register Hardware that Idou sports 3G connectivity, Wi-Fi and GPS.

Idou will be available later this year, but a price hasn’t been confirmed yet. ®
