Media player with a 12-megapixel camera?

That's what PMP Today is reporting on this Chinese product.


We hope the specs listed for this uber-media player didn't get lost in the translation from its Chinese manufacturer's site but, if that turns out to be the case, it wouldn't be surprising. According to PMP Today, the L1200 made by Newman-Hyun has a built-in 12-megapixel camera that can rotate up to 180 degrees, along with its 3-inch QVGA screen, SD card slot, and MP3 and video playback features. As of all that weren't enough, it's supposedly selling for only 999 yuan, or about $132. They had us at the 12 megapixels.
