Samsung Pixon: another 8 Megapixel shooter

Samsung’s highly impressive Symbian-based INNOV8 smartphone is arguably the most advanced do-it-all device currently on the market, but the plethora of smartphone features fused with multimedia features might be too much for some. For those snap happy users that want a simpler option, Samsung created the aptly named M8800 Pixon, a touch imaging device sans the advanced smartphone features. The Pixon is has quite a few features onboard including Samsung’s SRS Virtual Surround (often found on the company’s television sets) system inside, DivX support, TV-Out and GPS.

Not being a smartphone doesn’t stop the Pixon from being a formidable imaging device, similar to Sony Ericsson’s C905. The M8800 Pixon will feature the basics like autofocus and a flash, but also face,smile,blink detection, panoramic shooting, image stabilization and shake reduction software. And before we forget the oh-so-essential 8 Megapixel tag.

While the phone does have full 7.2Mbps HSDPA support, I would have liked to see WiFi support to make the package complete. Judging by the end of October release date, I say they should be hitting shelves any movement now. More info can be found here and of course here.
