Did you say 8.1 megapixel camera? Nice one Sony

Sony have jumped ahead on the megapixel category with their latest handset, the C905 Cyber-shot. Of course, as Dan Lane (regular contributor to the SMS Text News podcast) points out, megapixels aren’t necessarily indicative of photo quality per se. However if the C905 is anything like Sony’s K800 or K850 series handsets, it’ll be simply magnificent.
