Motorola to team with Kodak for cameraphone

Kodak president Antonio Perez said that Eastman Kodak and Motorola are planning to release a cameraphone that makes use of a Kodak imaging sensor, called CMOS. While Perez would not release details about the Moto deal or the device itself, he did say that Kodak was phasing out its lower lines of digital cameras, perhaps because of the rise cameraphones.

"Our CMOS sensors have been well advancing for many years. And now we will have the ability to embed the sensor in the phone with all the richness we have with our imaging software," Perez said. "It will allow us to make the sensor, the most important part of the camera, able to manage the light, color, and the like."
