3GSM Congress Announcements

A slew of new sensors were introduced in recent days on 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona.
Omnivision announced 3MP OV3630DZL module for camera phones in 1/3.2" format (Sys-Con Media). The module size is 9x9x7mm.
Also, after quite a long delay Omnivision starts volume production of OV7670 VGA and OV9655 1.3M CameraChips (Sys-Con Media).
Avago and Magnachip announced 1.3MP sensors each. Both have 2.8um pixel size, same 15fps full resolution speed, both have integrated ISP (EETAsia and Yahoo-Finance).
Kodak also announced 1.3MP sensor targeted to camera phones, part number KAC-01301 (NE Asia Online).
It looks like 1.3MP camera-phone sensor market gets extremely crowded and difference between the products is not that significant.
