NTT DoCoMo introduces in March Panasonic's P2102V Video Camera Mobile Phone.

This Phone, pardon my slang, is OFF THE HOOK!

The Foma P2102V is DoCoMo's first 3G videophone handset capable of video clip e-mailing and extended stand-by time, and the first FOMA model to accept memory cards.
The FOMA P2102V can e-mail up to approx. 24-second (100 KB) video clips created with either of its two built-in cameras. (The P2102V shoots video at up to 15 frames/second.)

The P2102V boasts continuous dynamic stand-by time of approximately 180 hours and static stand-by time of approximately 250 hours.

The size is 104x50x25mm and it weighs with batteries 133g.

This is also the first FOMA model equipped for SD memory cards. With a 128 MB memory card, users can store up to approximately three hours of high-resolution video, or 7,600 still pictures. Data is shared easily with any PC that can read these cards.

Another unique feature is the maneuverability of the P2102V's 2.35-inch, 262,144-color TFT screen, which rotates 135 degrees perpendicular (i.e. left/right) to the phone. Similar to a video camera, this high degree of maneuverability enables users to take video and still pictures from a wide range of angles.
The P2012V has a 310,000-pixel CMOS camera on the side of the handset and a 100,000-pixel CMOS camera above the TFT screen.

This must be the most powerful phone on the market.
