Security for virtualized datacentres

With a maximum resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, recorded video is certainly very good, and probably better than any we've yet seen on a cameraphone. Pictures were sharp, and relatively smooth, at least in comparison with other cameraphones, but let's not get too carried away. Despite offering 720p HD recording at 24f/s, it's not really a rival for even a low-rent dedicated digicam – we still saw some jerkiness and light fluctuations.

Options to record in slow or fast motion are a nice touch, but not much more than a gimmick really. Still, the fact that it bears comparison with standalone digital camcorders just about puts it in a class of its own where cameraphones are concerned. Mind you, 20 seconds of HD video in MPEG 4 format took up about 18MB of memory, so it's just as well there's 16GB capacity on board, which you can increase with Micro SD cards.
