The rebadged Altek Leo with a slightly improved camera (it's 16MP now) is coming in April (fingers crossed).

well sharp did a optical zoom camera before. guess what a big flop. becuase of the size. but hopefully they will be thinner and less chunky. but the technical specs ive seen so far. looks awesome.

becuase nobody has made the ultimate camera phone. well samsung made the Pixon M8920 but korea only. maybe this will be a japan only. very much doubt a uk release will be available. these kind of phones just dont come to the uk. if it did. i would get one tommorow.

please polaroid have common sense make a uk release.

The design is poor, and the look of the material used is very cheap. This should only be a good concept

GSMArena's review of the Altek Leo was not glowing on the camera performance front. The good optics and the 14MP size were let down by poor processing and a smallish sensor. Some of those issues could be addressed by better engineering but the small sensor is going to stay a big obstacle and I would have thought 16MP will just aggravate the problems.

As to the software, there is a thread on xda-developers describing the torture of Altek Leo owners in trying to get a good user experience.

Let us hope the input of Kodak sorts out all of those issues so that there is at least one serious competitor for the Nokia N8 to best camera phone title.

Well many set backs aside it looks cool and will probably have a beastly camera for a phone.

720p videos only? why the hell kodak is trying to impress with a 16 mega pixels device when it doesn't offer the essential 1080p?
