Sony‘s CEO Howard Stringer let it slip up that the iPhone 5 will be equipped with an 8 megapixel camera, or at least that’s what many people think.Here’s how it happened: at a conference, Stringer said that the Japanese tsunami would affect supplies of camera sensors made by Sony for Apple iPhones. But none of the iPhones that currently ship have cameras made by Sony.
And Sony has a new camera for phones that is 8 MP and really well regarded (so fit for Apple), and a previous report had said that the iPhone 5 would have an 8 MP camera from Sony.
