Sharp announces the availabilty of a 8 Mega-Pixel Digital Camera Module for small digital cameras.

The Sharp 8MP digital camera module is not bigger than today's 4 or 6MP CCDs. This enables Camera manufacturers pretty easily create compact 8MP digital cameras without much design changes. The Sharp CCD goes in mass production in January. So i guess we can see tons of 8MP digital cameras in lower price ranges and in compact sizes mid 2005.
