Casio busts out with 8.1 MP flip phone

With the latest crop of 8-megapixel phones, one would think they’d become ubiquitous and 2.0, 3.2 and 5 megapixel cell phones will be a thing of the past. Casio has put their Exilim series into a phone with the W63CA (if they plan on sticking around, they really ought to come up with a cooler name). This sharp shooter boasts a 3.1″ OLED display with 480 x 800 pixels – imagine the clarity and vividness of that high-definition screen. That’s right people, Casio has managed to stuff the same resolution as the HTC Touch HD into a display over a half-ince smaller! Of course, the main attraction here is the camera itself with a wide-angle lens, 9-point auto-focus, face detection, anti-shake controls and a video recorder that records VGA video at 30fps onto a microSD card – perfect for YouTube. See it hit Japan in early November and the US, umm, never.
