This week we spotted three hot Sony Ericsson camera phones file into the FCC database, namely the C903 Cyber-shot, the CS8 Cyber-shot, and the W995 Walkman. The C903 Cyber-shot is a 5-megapixel shooter, while both the CS8 and the W995 sport 8.1-megapixel lenses. The W995 also marks the first Sony Ericsson phone we've seen with a 3.5-mm headset jack, which we're definitely happy about. Not really sure which carriers these phones will end up with, but we're excited to see more high-end camera phones come our way.
Because the FCC has to certify every phone sold in the United States, not to mention test its digital SAR rating, the agency's online database offers a lot of sneak peeks to those who dig. And to save you the trouble, Crave has combed through the database for you. Here are a selection of filings from the past week on new and upcoming cell phones. Click through to read the full report.
