Samsung Pixon12 available for pre-order now


Phones4U seems a rather strange place to have an exclusive but that’s where you can get a Samsung Pixon12 from 1st August in the UK.

It’s available for pre-order now on a £40 per month contract from Orange where you can get 900 minutes and 3000 texts with an 18 month contract or 1200 mins and 3000 texts if you want to anchor yourself to a full two years.

Got a feeling that this “exclusive” is of the pre-order nature only and doubtless there’ll be a few less soul-wrenching deals come August.

The Pixon12 comes with a 3.1-inch touch AMOLED, Wi-Fi, HSDPA and, of course, a 12-megapixel camera.

Samsung unveils 12-megapixel Pixon12 mobile phone


Samsung has unleashed the first 12-megapixel camera-phone on planet Earth. The Pixon12 was launched today, will be on sale within a month in Europe and will doubtless have compact manufacturers quaking in their already quaky-shaky boots.

The news will come as a bit of a blow to Sony Ericsson who’ve just shown off their 12.1-megapixel Idou, or Satio or whatever it is they choose to call it, when it hits the shelves all too late in Q4. I don’t suppose that 0.1 of a megapixel is going to keep them very warm at the wrong end of six months of potential profit loss.

Worth remembering that megapixels aren’t everything but then, if you’re reading this, you probably already know that.
