Samsung Acme i8910 info spills out

Duncan Geere Mobile phones Leave a Comment


Strange names for products can sometimes work – just look at the Wii. Even so, the Samsung Acme, which info has just leaked about, is a little too close to ‘acne’ for my liking. It’s heavily based on the Omnia, and actually looks to be a pretty decent upgrade to Samsung’s cameraphone.

It boasts an 8-megapixel sensor, GPS, HDMI, Wi-Fi, and a 3.5mm headphone socket. It’ll do HD recording, and it’s DNLA and DivX compatible. There’ll be 8GB and 16GB versions available, and because it’s got a massive touchscreen, it’ll invariably be referred to as an “iPhone Killer” at some point in its life. Sigh. No word on release date or pricing. Yet.

RUMOUR: Samsung cameraphone hits 12 megapixels

Duncan Geere Cameras, Mobile phones Leave a Comment


In a couple of weeks, Mobile World Congress will hit, and we’ll have more mobile phone news than you can shake a stick at. Until then, we’ve just got all the rumours of the stuff that phone companies will release – continuing with this one. Samsung may be unveiling a 12-megapixel cameraphone at MWC.

What’s startling is their urgency to get this on the market. Sources suggest that it’ll hit production lines this month, arriving in Europe shortly after. I can’t help but think, however, that this is more of a marketing move than a technological one, and the image quality won’t be fantastic.
