Always pushing the limits of camera phones, Sony Ericsson has done it again. Today, the company announced the Sony Ericsson C905 Cyber-shot, a slider phone equipped with an impressive 8.1-megapixel camera. (As far as we know, the Samsung SCH-B600 is the only mobile to have a higher lens at 10 megapixels.) But it's not all about the megapixels as the C905 has a Xenon flash, an image stabilizer, face detection, and autofocus, to name just a few of the camera options available to you.

The C905 Cyber-shot also follows in the footsteps of the Nokia N78 by adding integrated GPS and the ability to geotag any of photos that you take with the phone. The handset will also be able to provide you with voice-guided directions for more than 50 countries, since it comes preloaded with a three-month complimentary subscription to Wayfinder Navigator.

Other features include a 2.4-inch scratch-resistant display, an included 2GB Memory Stick Micro, and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth (with A2DP support). The Sony Ericsson C905 Cyber-shot is a quad-band (GSM 850/900/1800/1900) phone with support for the 2100 UMTS/HSPDA band, while a second model, the C905a, will be tri-band UMTS/HSDPA 850/1900/2100. The C905 is expected to ship to select markets in Q4; no word on U.S. availability or pricing yet.
