Panasonic’s Z800 3G handset has just been announced over in Asia. The phone has a 1.3-megapixel outer camera (no mention of the internal camera’s resolution) with auto-focusing and Panasonic’s proprietary AV technology. The 2-inch internal screen is only 65K colour unfortunately, while the outer colour screen display 56K colours. There’s a miniSD slot, Bluetooth, MMS, USB 2.0 and infrared. No mention of a UK launch, but we’re not bothered: the Sony Ericsson V800 will be here soon. We’ve had a go with it and first impressions are that it’s fantastic – and it beats the Panasonic for specs as well with 262k colour internal screen, 65K external screen, 1.3-megapixel camera that rotates so you don’t lose quality by using an inferior internal camera and blindingly bright and effective flash light.
