Kodak and Motorola are developing a new 5Mpix camera-phone, which should appear the end of 2007.
The new Motorola-Kodak handset is expected to become at least an equal match to camera-phones from other well-known manufacturers, such as Nokia, LG, Sony Ericsson, or Casio.
The device must have high-end features and a qualitative camera to be competitive. The best way to do this is by partnering with a well known camera company. So Motorola has joined forces with Kodak. This partnership is mutually beneficial, as it gives Kodak a new market in which to expand, and Motorola's new camera-phones get instant credibility.
