  1. It's very interesting that iPhone 3gS went with ST Micro less than a month after releasing the launch models with an Omnivision sensor. Samsung clearly is the prefered choice overall.
    What sensor and embedded DxO ISP does the Palm Pre use?

  2. I believe iPhone uses both ST and Omnivision. It's quite usual that big handset manufacturers use two sources for camera module.
