“Why didn’t you write about the cameras on the PDAs you reviewed?”, asked a reader.
Quite simply, because all PDA camera’s are shite, that’s why.
Here’s two pictures showing why:
PDA, and mobile phone cameras fail in the following areas:
- picture quality
- responsiveness (lack of)
ie. take a photo, wait for the PDA to process it, take another photo, wait again.
- depth of field (none)
But for completeness, here’s what those PDA’s had:
|Megapixels||Largest picture size||Flash||2nd camera (for video-call)|
|Sony Xpedia X1||3.15||2048×1536||Yes||Yes|
|Palm Treo Pro||2.0||1600×1200||No||No|
|HTC Touch HD||5.0||2592×1944||Yes||Yes|
|Samsung BlackJack II||2.0||1600×1200||No||No|
The Sony Xpedia X1 took the best pictures of the four units.
