Rumor: Motorola Working on Jesus-Phone Replacement?

Rumor: Motorola Working on Jesus-Phone Replacement?

So apparently Motorola is working on a new device whose features are nearly unbelievable. However, not so unbelievable as its apparently making its way into final production.

So here is why it is unbelievable: 640x480 VGA (maybe touchscreen), 3G, GPS, Bluetooth 2.0, 5MP camera with Xenon flash from Kodak, FM radio, 3.5mm audio out, and support for just about every single audio and video codec. Oh yeah, and I almost forgot to mention that its supposed to be Linux-based.

Nikon COOLPIX P5100 and P50

Nikon COOLPIX P5100 and P50

First, the P5100 is an upgrade from the P5000 by about 2MP, the P5100 has 12MP and with the new EXPEED chip can reach ISO 3200. There is also better 12-face face detection and a mode dial that has 15 presets. There is a flash hotshoe, and a 3.5x optical zoom lens with optical stabilization, and apparently there are adapter lenses for telephoto and wide-angle shots.

The Nokia P50 is dialed down a little bit from the P5100, it still does a decent 8.1 megapixels. The image stabilization is done electronically this time though. The improved face detections and the 15 preset mode dial are inherited though. It also receives a lens with a slightly longer focal length, it comes with a 3.6x zoom lens.
