Although the Kodak M1033 has yet to be launched in most parts of Asia, the company has already rebranded this point-and-shoot in anticipation of this summer's Beijing Olympics.

The M2008 is essentially the same as the M1033, down right to the 10-megapixel sensor, 3x optical zoom, 3-inch LCD display and the ability to capture 720p-quality video, according to Newlaunches. However, the matte-black chassis now sports the Olympic 2008 logo, as well as two lines of Chinese characters indicating that it's the official camera for the event. Kodak told us the M2008 will be available only in Hong Kong, China, and Taiwan. Pricing will be about $270.
