Sony Ericsson Satio 12MP Camera Phone at the FCC

Sony Ericsson Satio 12MP Camera Phone at the FCC
And the blurring lines between a slim digital camera and a slim cellular phone are getting even blurrier today with the arrival of the Sony Ericsson Satio. This gorgeous number is making an appearance at the FCC offices, soaking in all it can while it gets its glamour shots done. And what a glamourous phone it is.

Easily the most notable feature on this handset is the 12.1-megapixel camera embedded into the rear. This has to be one of the highest resolution cameras to ever get integrated into a mobile phone. This isn’t anything to sneeze at either, since it comes with autofocus, xenon flash, and 12x digital zoom. Thankfully, there’s a sliding lens cover too.

In regards to the non-camera features on the Sony Ericsson Satio, you find a huge 3.5-inch 16:9 wide aspect touchscreen display (640 x 360 pixel), 128MB of internal memory, microSDHC expansion, FM radio with RDS, aGPS with turn-by-turn directions, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi.

The Satio is no smartphone, but it’s sure looking sharp as one feature-rich feature phone. Since it’s been able to jump through the first set of FCC hoops, it probably shouldn’t be too long before the Satio is ready for a retail launch, right?

    The iPhone is a very smart phone; it has very advance technological features compared to other phones on the same league. But on the other-hand the all new Satio from Sony Ericsson is a beast compared to the iPhone.

    The Sony Ericsson Satio is a very intelligent device incorporates with 12.5 megapixel onboard camera and 3.5 inch widescreen (16:9 aspect ratios)

    Sorry, but I completely disagree with the praising of the 12 MP camera in Satio.
    Cramming all these megapixels into a tiny sensor gives an extremely high pixel density. This will make the camera useless as soon as the light is less intense than sunshine in the middle of the day. More about this on my latest blog post:
