DoCoMo Offers Auto-Focus Camera Phone

Camera phones are getting more like regular cameras. For everyone who keeps saying that camera phones hold no interest for them because the quality isn’t good enough, you need to remember to add the ever important “yet” at the end of that statement. Today, NTT DoCoMo announced a new handset, the mova P505iS from Panasonic, that claims to be the first camera phone to include auto-focus. I have no idea if the “first” claim is true, but it is indicative of how quickly the camera part of camera phones is improving and adding all the qualities of a regular camera.
