Omnivision Sensor Enables Ultra-Thin Modules

Yahoo-Finance: Omnivision trumpets about shrink of VGA camera-phone module to just 6 x 6 x 4.1 mm.
OV7670 sensor inside the module has 1/6 inch format with 3.6um pixel pitch. The sensor has "unique non-linear micro lens shift technology" which "allows a reduction in the distance between sensor and lens, lowering the module height even further without losing image quality or camera performance". The (unnamed part number) module uses a simplified 2P lens design.
The module is available in samples now.
