New tiny 5MP camera from Sharp

Sharp 5MP Camera RJ63SC100

Sharp (you know, the guys that make all the Sidekicks except the Slide) have announced a new tiny but high resolution (5MP) camera that even has auto focus. If you ask us, this looks amazingly similar in size and shape to the cameras currently in the Sidekick LX. Sharp says the new camera will be available for mass production in July so chances are we won’t see this in the Sidekick Gekko. But this would be something to keep an eye out for the Hiptop m3 (or whatever they’re going to call it), which we speculate will be coming out at the end of the year.

    I sure do hope they put this on the next kick. Then it’ll have people stop bitching about the sidekick’s camera.
    It gets so annoying hearing people complain.

    Is it going to be on LX as update or addon or what ? I am not sure because I order LX already and I am going to get it this tuesday.
