This year, one company is set on shaping the universe of camera-enabled mobile phones. That phone-maker is Sony Ericsson, and they plan to dominate the market with the Sony Ericsson C905. But they have competition in the shape of the Samsung Pixon. So, which will win?

Camera phones in history - the world created by Sony Ericsson

It's rather apt, when you think about it, that Sony Ericsson should be the ones leading the way in the revolution in camera-equipped mobile phones. After all, it was they who kicked it all off, long ago, in 2002. Lest we forget, they were the first manufacturer to release a mobile phone that had a camera in it, in the UK. That mobile was the Sony Ericsson P800, but it didn't really hit the mass market in the way that Sony Ericsson wanted, since it was an amazingly (compared to other mobile phones at the time) top-end smartphone. But, their most iconic handset in history was about to be unleashed, and that one WOULD have great market penetration. It was the Sony Ericsson T610, and it moved the goalposts. Here you had a device that stood head and shoulders over the rival mobile phones around it. It was small, it was sexy, and people LOVED it. Plus, let's not forget that the Sony Ericsson T610 also had an integrated camera, and that it was really the first handset to go to the wider market, and make them think, 'Hang on, we actually do want our mobile phones to have cameras in 'em!'

Sony Ericsson C905 - the ultimate camera phone?

You just can't deny power, and one thing is for definite: the Sony Ericsson C905's got much more raw power than all other mobile phones you'll come across in the UK. Why is it so special? Well, it's the first camera phone to be unleashed upon the UK that has an 8 megapixel camera. Yup. 8. That's a ludicrously huge pixel count, and it means that the Sony Ericsson C905 gives you the power to take the absolute most jaw-dropping pictures you've ever experienced, from any camera-equipped mobile phone, ever. Oh, and on top of that, don't forget that Sony Ericsson have amped it up with Cyber-Shot technology, and that will make the photos it produces so much more sumptuous. Add in a brilliant multimedia player, WiFi, HSDPA and integrated GPS, and the end result is that the Sony Ericsson C905 is, without doubt, the best they've ever made!

Samsung Pixon - the phone to end Sony Ericsson's reign?

Ok, so it's fair to say the Sony Ericsson C905 is a work of genius. But is there a mobile phone that can beat it? Well, how about one with an 8 megapixel camera AND a full touchscreen interface? That's exactly what you get with the Samsung Pixon. Mind you, it has to be said, the Samsung Pixon is a truly beautiful mobile phone, and arguably produces slightly crisper photos than the Sony Ericsson C905. And then, of course, there's that huge touchscreen, and that slick interface, making for one incredibly sexy and lovable mobile phone. At the end of the day, it's going to come down to personal preference, but of the two mobile phones (and bear in mind, when I say this, that it's a Sony junkie saying it...), I'd really have to go for the incredible Samsung Pixon.
