Memory Stick Camera Coming in November
Sony has announced that the first non-memory Memory Stick will be a digital camera. With the not exactly exciting name PEGA-MSC1, this camera will be able to take pictures at up to 320 x 240 pixels. It has a swiveling lens that allows it to take a picture of either the user or what's in front of the user. It runs off power from the handheld so no additional batteries are necessary. It will be available in late November for $150.
Update: The MSC1 will only work with the N760C, N610C, T415 and OS upgraded N710C.
The MSC1 has no internal memory storage capacity. All the images it takes are stored in the Clié's own memory.
A month or so ago, Sony put out a press release on the MSC1 and GPS module in Japan. There has been no word on when the GPS module will be available.
Sony has been showing off prototypes of Memory Stick I/O modules for close to a year but this will be the first one to actually be available. Several months ago a Sony executive talked about a Bluetooth Memory Stick but it has yet to be announced. They have also shown off a fingerprint recognition module.
