Imagine how small your digital camera could be if you had a camera module, including CMOS, which was about 10mm, cubed in size. It’s actually 10.5×11.5×9.4 millimeters in size, but you get the idea.
It apparently already exists, and has been made by Samsung. However it will be used in mobile phones as I hope that you’ve come to expect better lenses than those offered from a mobile phone cam.
The best part is that right around the time you start seeing Android phones, the OS that more or less requires a fairly powerful mobile graphics chip, yeah, that’s about the same time you’ll see a camera on a phone taking those 8MP shots. Kind of fitting no? anywho, they are going into mass production in the first two quarters of next year.
