OK so it's all rumour and speculation at the moment, but the blogosphere is getting excited at the prospect of mobile phones offering Full HD recording.

It may not happen until 2012, but a corporate slide from Sony Ericsson that has found its way into a tech journo's mailbox shows that the phone manufacturer seems to think this is a possibility.

As well as Full HD video recording, SE phones could also deliver still images at resolutions of between 12-20 megapixels.

There's already a plethora of 8-megapixel models out there so why not?

But does this mean that phone manufacturers are just about to get embroiled in a pixel race like the one we are still seeing amongst digital camera makers. Possibly - but it can only be a good thing for the consumer.
