Toshiba Regza IS04 is the world’s first 12MP Android phone

Japan’s KDDI (which will launch the Samsung SMT-i9100 Froyo tablet next year) has announced three new Android smartphones.

One of them is the Toshiba Regza IS04 – which, as far as I’m aware, is the first Android handset to come with a 12 Megapixel photo camera.

The Regza IS04 is waterproof and it also features a 4 inch FWVGA (854x 480) display, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a 1GHz Snapdragon processor. The smartphone should be out in January 2011, apparently with Android 2.1 on-board (but Froyo may be included by then).

Toshiba will most likely not launch the IS04 (pictured below) outside Japan – although this would surely give the Nokia N8 a run for its money (the N8 being the first 12MP Symbian smartphone)

KDDI’s other two Android smartphones are the Sharp IS05 and the Pantech Sirius IS06. Both run Android 2.2 Froyo and should be out in Japan starting December.
