I think this sensor was intended for some future Nokia Pureview camera phone but then MS cancelled the development. Now Canon needs to find someone else who needs that high megapixel count... ;)
edu T: Does anyone know the true dimensions (width x height) of this 1/1.2" sensor?
10.67 mm x 8.00 mm according to the "Image sensor format" article on Wikipedia.
Nokia 808 looks very promising. It cannot be compared to SLRs, but I guess it would be a fantastic camera(phone) that I could always carry with me. Dpreview please review the 808 asap! :)
