According to Ron Risman, editor of Cameratown.com: "The Samsung MM-A800 camera phone has a split personality. On one side is a very full-featured cell phone with slide out keyboard, vibrant color screen, and the ability to stream video clips, music, and view photos. Flip the camera over and you have what looks to be an easy-to-use 2.0 Megapixel point-and-shoot digital camera, complete with sliding lens cover and flash. If you placed the phone on a table with the camera side up, few people will know that it's also a phone.

The Samsung MM-A800 camera phone also records video either to the 32MB of internal RAM of the handset at 640x480 pixel resolution, or alternatively directly to a microSD expansion card. Also, the Samsung MM A800 features an audio player with support for AAC tunes, which would likely require users to purchase the extended battery accessory to avoid depleting the feature-laden phone in no time at all. Offering USB connectivity, the Samsung MM-A800 is also PictBridge compatible, letting users output images directly to PictBridge-equipped printers.
Cameratown.com - Summary
The Samsung MM-A800 is the first 2.0-megapixel resolution camera phone to be released in the U.S. While 2-megapixel resolution seems pretty archaic in a world of 5-, 6- and 8 Megapixel cameras, there is enough resolution to make photo quality 4"x6" prints, assuming the lens quality and compression levels don't hinder the image quality.
