Excerpt: The Sony Ericsson C905 packs a powerful 8 megapixel punch, and has the distinction of being the first camera phone to do so. While some manufacturers deliver a sub-standard camera experience Sony Ericsson seems to pride itself in delivering a usable camera phone that produces good pictures. What we like It's not just about squeezing as many megapixels through the lens as possible, the C905 comes with a number of neat camera features.
Excerpt: Sony Ericsson’s 8 megapixel camera phone, the C905 Cybershot, made its way into our labs just recently and it has a few neat surprises in store for SE fans. Allow me to give you my impression on the latest Cybershot camera phone that’s hit the shelves. Form Factor While at first sight the C905 may come off as a bit bulky, weighty and thick (18mm), it however does have that feel good factor that will immediately take away all doubt of it being something one would construe...
Conclusion: If you're into photography and prefer traditionally designed phones, the Sony Ericsson Cyber-shot C905a should be on your short (very short) list of high megapixel camera phones available in the US. It takes superb shots and the Xenon flash shows up Nokia and allows for good indoor images. We'd like to see higher video resolution-- QVGA is absurdly low for an 8.1 megapixel camera phone and Nokia puts it to shame with their recent N series models.
Pros: 8.1 megapixels of Cyber-shot camera goodness!
Summary: In this 8th year of the millennium, we often wonder if it's just a coincidence that most manufacturers are now introducing their 8-megapixel lineup. Yet once again, we are looking at another 8-megapixel device, the Sony Ericsson Cyber-shot C905. Announced during CommunicAsia 2008, this new introduction from Sony Ericsson will be joining the likes of both the Samsung INNOV8 and LG KC910 Renoir.
Is this 8.1-megapixel beast the king of camera phones?

Summary: If you’re purely after a phone for imaging, then the C905 will be right up your alley. While we’re still waiting for optical zoom, the photos it produces are pretty noteworthy for a camera phone. An excellent design and good build quality are slightly let down by a somewhat sluggish user interface and a proprietary headphone jack.
Pros: 8.1-megapixel camera, Xenon flash, face detection, good build quality, impressive layout of keys and design, built-in GPS
Cons: No optical zoom, lens cover somewhat loose, no 3.5mm headphone jack or adapter, slightly sluggish interface
