Mobile World Congress: Nokia Launches 8-Megapixel Camera Phone

Nokia has jumped on the lotsa-megapixels camera phone bandwagon, launching the N86 camera phone at Mobile World Congress, which features a camera with eight megapixels of horsepower.

It features a mechanical shutter, wide angle lens (but no zoom), 30 frames-per-second video capture, plus all the requisite smartphone features like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, and 3G.

Nokia will start selling it by the end of the second quarter at the list price of $475.

Heavy-duty camera phones are a bit of a theme at the conference. For instance, Samsung has launched the 8-megapixel Memoir, while Sony Ericsson unveiled a 12-megapixel phone, code-named “Idou.”
