Default Windows mobile with excellent camera?

Guys, I am a loyal fan of Windows Mobile phones. But I never managed to find a windows phone with decent camera. So I am still stuck with 1st generation windows phone and waiting for a good windows phone with an excellent camera.

The best I could find is this yet-to-be-released 3.1mp camera phone and since it is from Sony Ericsson I am assuming the camera will be comparable to a generic 5MP camera. I am tired of waiting for a windows 5MP phone ever sinse Nokia N95 came out.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 pictures, official photos


So my questions:

Does Sony Ericsson release their phones in India along with their global release?

Do you guys know any other Windows mobile with an excellent camera?


Thanks

If you are content with a 2MP camera, you could buy a HTC PDA/Smart phone.

i am aiming for 5MP, but can settle for a good 3.2mp :-) i can't believe the 'expensive' PDA phones don't offer best in class cameras.

Sony Ericsson cameras are of good quality. So windows-mobile and SonyEricsson camera is a good combination. (not available till now)

You could try out Htc Tytn II, that has very decent 3MP Cam with autofocus but lacks flash though.

HTC Touch has a very slow porcessor and is slow, battery life is no go good.

After the dust settles abt the touch fancy , you start fellinga need for keyboard...

Any ideas about Moto Q9, its windows 6 mobiles with rating as best keyboard, has very fast processor, upto190mb internal memory..

Even Q8 IMHO is good and value for money. But camera specs does not match your requirements

I am using a HTC touch for the past three months and have never felt so. You will feel the slowness only if you use the processor intensive applications. I use the phone for push e-mail and occassional internet and no problems at all.

Initially I was extensively using the stylus, but now, after some getting used to, I am more comfortable with my finger and touch screen operations.
