Maximum PC Camera Showdown Pits Phones Against Each Other!

"Let's face it: here at Maximum PC, we're all about competition. It's in our blood. From CPUs to video cards to motherboards to sandwich shops, we live to pit like products (or foodstuffs) against one another. In fact, we recently published an all out showdown between four warring phones and mobile platforms in our quarterly Maximum Tech issue which we're sure you read. That story (as many of our published stories sometimes do) encouraged us to dig a little deeper, and perform a little more testing. The cameras attached to these complex microcomputers are becoming increasingly powerful-many, in fact, are fully capable of taking very sharp and professional looking photos. But are these phones capable of holding their own against more sophisticated equipment? And which phone does it best?"

The above shot, despite being of cute little Android robots, was taken with an iPhone 4. The article it came from, over at Maximum PC pits many of the top phones against each other specifically in the area of camera quality. Thinking of buying a phone and the camera is a big factor? Then take a look and be informed!

Become a Telmap Navigator Beta Tester

Telmap has opened its user group to you, dear Pocket PC Thoughts reader. Join the user group and you'll join a beta program that will allow you to test and use Telmap Navigator for free. Navigator is a turn-by-turn in-car navigation application, complete with 3D moving maps, traffic and speed camera information, text-to-speech capabilities, pedestrian support, and local search for millions of POIs around the world.

To register, visit www.telmap.com/tugpc. Feedback can be addressed to tugadmin [at] telmap [dot] com.

Update #1: The folks at Telmap have just written in to inform us that they've been overwhelmed by Pocket PC Thoughts readers interested in testing Navigator. As a result, they will soon be imposing a limit on the number of registrations in order to keep the group to a manageable size. So, if you want in, you'd better scoot off to the registration page before it's too late. We'll post a second update once the doors have closed.

Update #2: Telmap has received plenty of US registrations, so the limit is on US registrations only. The company is still welcoming registrations from readers based in other countries.
