Reason For
Selection
The industry-leading mobile phone with a built-in camera. Integrating a newly-
developed lens with a 1/7” 110,000 pixel C-MOS image sensor enabled captured images
to be sent directly by email over mobile telephone networks. The Japanese term “Sha-
mail", which stands for "mail with photo attached", gained popularity once mobile
carrier J-Phone made the service available on the market.J-SH04 became the forerunner
of today’s mobile phones, which now have built-in cameras.
