The camera-like appearance of Samsung's Pixon 12 M8910 flagship camera phone could tempt you to chuck out your compact snapper. But its xenon flash, which helps to produce excellent photos in low light, is also its downfall, since the phone often fails to capture a picture when the flash isn't ready. It's frustrating, and, since a camera phone's strength should be its readiness to snap that spontaneous gurn, celebrity or Loch Ness Monster shot, it's a major flaw. Besides its camera, the Pixon 12 is an average touchscreen phone.

There you go - the Samsung M8910 Pixon12 is the next stage in cameraphone evolution and you're welcome to take it and use it. Cameraphones are still some way behind point-and-shoot digicams and seriously, catching up is not the point. The thing is if everything else was getting better at the pace handsets are evolving, we'd be living in a better world.

Anyway, real success for cameraphones would not be to kick digicams out of the market but simply match their image quality. We guess the Pixon12 is here to say this might not be as impossible as previously thought. Optical zoom and more user control over more features are still the difference makers but with Samsung M8920 in the works, we're looking out to another leap forward.

Back to the Pixon12, we're looking at a handset that has plenty to offer. The vibrant and sensitive screen, lively and snappy interface and rich connectivity make it a great package all around. Its initial pricing is steep all right: topping the cost of big-shot smartphone all-in-ones. Not to mention that this kind of cash gets you a reasonable digicam and a good enough phone. Oh well, being at the cutting edge of technology never comes cheap.

The Pixon12 is winner stuff but we guess we need to define win here. It's not the kind of handset to make insane sales - the price tag, the novelty, the top industry position will rather connect with the "insane purchase" kind of mentality. But it sure is handsets like the Pixon12 that make a company's name. Let's judge the Pixon12 by the competition it keeps busy.
