Codename Idou, with 12.1Megapixel camera

Despite everyone expecting Samsung to be the first company to announce a 12.1Megapixel camera phone, it turned out that Sony Ericsson managed to beat them to it with the introduction of a handset that is currently going under the code name of Idou.

This handset is quite different from what we've seen from Sony Ericsson in the past and it focuses on the multimedia features more than anything else and as such, it has a 16:9 3.5in touch screen with a somewhat disappointing 640x320 resolution, as this isn't as good as some other recently announced media savvy handsets. It looks like Sony Ericsson has also borrowed the UI, at least in part, from the PS3, although it doesn't show on the pictures below.

This is also the first Sony Ericsson handset based on the Symbian Foundation platform to be officially revealed. Other features include built in WiFi, GPS, a forward facing camera for video calls, a Xenon flash and an M2 memory card slot. As for the rest, we'll just have to wait and see and it's a long wait, as Sony Ericsson has only given a very vague 2H 2009 launch date. If Samsung hurries up, they might be the first to market with a 12.1Megapxiel camera phone at this rate.

There's a preview site available here
