SEMC Blog posted a mini story about the upcoming S312 Snapshot, a low-end camera phone in candybar form. Codenamed Athena, it looks all right, and is pretty light on the specs - a small screen at 176x220 pixels and a really token camera without auto-focus and less than two megs.
Specs are scarse, but the S312 should be available in Q3 in selected markets.
So what do you think? Considering the recent leak of the back-to-basics T707 from Sony E, are budget phones the next big thing in 2009?
