Sony Ericsson Idou with 12MP camera

When an 8MP camera phone is just not enough, there’s Idou… Sony Ericsson may have just announced the 8MP W995 but it is already reaching for a new goal. It showed off the first 12MP camera phone, the Idou (concept name only) during a press event on the eve of the Mobile World Congress.

The Idou will be powered by a new Symbian Foundation operating system. This new OS will support touchscreen displays such as the 3.5-inch one of the Idou. From the video, it appears that the Idou will only have a soft keyboard and that the display will have a 16:9 aspect ratio. Other details about the Idou, aside from that 12MP camera with autofocus and Xenon flash, should be revealed later.

You can see more at the new Sony Ericsson Idou microsite.
