Altek T8680 = More Camera Than Cell Phone

 Altek T8680 = More Camera Than Cell PhoneMore and more people want their cell phones to produce decent quality photos, because they simply cannot be bothered to carry around a separate digital camera. It’s all about convergence without having to sacrifice quality. Altek of Taiwan might have just the ticket for shutterbugs, since this impressive beast can easily be mistaken for a standalone point-and-shoot.

From the front, the Altek T8680 might look like a fairly standard cell phone from a a company that may not be familiar to you, but swapping around to the back reveals quite the impressive difference. If you didn’t know any better, you’d think that you were looking at a regular digital camera.

That’s because the Altek T8680 comes equipped with an impressive 12 megapixel camera, complete with 3x optical zoom. That sounds just about as good as most consumer-level cameras these days. Topping out the features are a dedicated image processor, F3.0-F5.6, and up to ISO 3200. You’ll also notice that they opted for CCD over CMOS for the sensor, offering reduced image noise and improved light sensitivity.

Running through the non-camera part of the spec sheet, we discover that the T8680 gets a 3″ QVGA touchscreen, FM tuner, tri-band EDGE, stereo Bluetooth, VGA video, and TV-out. The whole shi-bang sells in Taiwan for about $440.
