Hi-res smugness
Apple’s upcoming iPhone 5 will apparently pack cameras developed by Sony.

Sony CEO Howard Stringer told the Wall Street Journal that the company is manufacturing camera components for Apple, but he did not go into details. People in the know believe Apple will use an 8MP camera for the new phone, a rather significant improvement over the current 5MP snapper.

Stringer recognized the somewhat strange situation of shipping cameras to the competition, ironically remarking: “Why would I make Apple the best camera?”

Sony has a pretty good track record in terms of phone cameras and Apple stands to greatly benefit from Sony’s experience. The iPhone was never much in the camera department and the lack of a proper camera in the first three generations of the phone was rather embarrassing for a company that prides itself on eye candy and sleek design.

There’s still plenty of speculation surrounding the new iPhone 5 to go around. A white version is expected, which should make fans who were hoping to get a white iPhone 4 quite happy. The new phone should be powered by the dual-core A5 processor, greatly improving performance. However, at the moment the biggest question is the fate of the iPhone 4 and rumours of a cheaper iPhone variant. The iPhone 4 is still one of the most appealing phones on the market, so there’s a good chance Apple will drop the price and continue to carry it for months after it introduces its successor.
