Not only that, the Exilim C721 is equipped with a 5.1-megapixel camera lens, which makes it one of a few high-megapixel camera phones available on a U.S. carrier. To enhance the camera experience, the front flip of the Exilim C721 can be twisted so that the display faces outward, thus becoming the camera viewfinder. You can then hold it in your hand like you would a regular point-and-shoot camera. If you choose to leave the front flip twisted half-way, you can use the display as a self-portrait viewfinder as well. The camera comes with a slew of settings, including 15 "Best Shot" modes that adjust the camera settings to a particular need, like Portraits, Night Mode, and Scenery. And, of course, there's a built-in camcorder as well.
Aside from the camera, the C721 has a ton of features, like a music player, EV-DO Rev. A, stereo Bluetooth, and more. Surprisingly, the C721 even comes with a HTML Web browser. It's not quite as advanced as we would like--you need to enter the URL in a separate page, for example--but it's still nice to have in a flip phone like this.
The Casio Exilim C721 won't come cheap, however; it is available for $279.99 with a two-year contract and a $50 mail-in rebate from Verizon Wireless. You can readto see if it's worth the price.
