    Do I dare to ask; does Palm suck? How can they release the 800w with only a 1.3 mega pixel camera. Fire away!

    It's probably a mis-print or has been updated as I've heard the Sprint version shoots at 1600x1200 (2.1mp).

    Also, that data sheet says WM 6, but we know WM6.1 is available for the device as well, so perhaps it's just a few months old. No date on when that sheet was made?

    I love having a camera on my PDAs, but I usually don't use the higher MP settings--just too much motion artifact. Would be nice if they would just put a decent camera in the phone (my Nokia flip phone takes better pics than any of my PDAs) with faster software.

    Maybe I jumped the gun on my statement? I am actually looking forward to my Treo 800W and also I am looking forward to the google (Samsung ect) Android phone; it looks super! Hopefully Android will be a power users phone!!

    I dont use a phone to take good picture. They dont.

    I only do 640x480 so I can get some simple shots.

    This photo,taken from this thread,shows that pictures taken by camera phones can be pretty nice sometimes.

    Most new cameras do very well under well lit conditions. The "magic" comes more form processing the image on the device and finding the right balance between color/contrast/brightness, which is up to the OEM when they setup tweak the hardware to the software.

    I'll take a 2.1mp that is well balanced over a 3mp + that is poorly implemented any day. So lets just hope the 800w follows the above.

    You should read this helpful guide:

    Even the Centro's 1.3mp (gasp!) camera is quite usable, imo, which may be a good sign:

    I think you would have to admit that picture is the exception rather than the rule...

    Hopefully they have focused on things that matter.... if you want a good picture phone, there are some out there you can pickup.... I want my 800w to be a work device... if I take pictures for work, then I would more than likely have a tool (camera) dedicated for that purpose.

    But I don't care for cameras in phones anyway... for the most part they take shtay pictures compared to my canon 7.1 mp 4x optical....

    Like Maltesta said, all most camera phone need for good pictures are good light. Plenty of light in that picture.

    Mal, were those Centro pics from a CDMA or GSM version? I saw someone somewhere (not TC) trying to stir up some controversy by claiming that the different versions of the Centro had slightly different sensors/camera software.

    Also, were those shots taken by the standard Palm Camera app or PhotosHQ?

    CDMA and standard app with no touch ups.

    As far as the GSM/CDMA and different cameras, that's the first I've heard of it and I have no idea if it's true or not. All I know is compared to my 700wx, it's much, much, better.

    Ditto, the Centro's camera is a good bit better than my 755p's camera (which in itself is a good bit better than my 700p's camera).
