What size is this chip? 8mp and suitable for phones?

It does not, unless you are satisfied with, "thumbnail sized."

Whose thumb?

According to my thumbnail the sensor must be 1" - even bigger than the 2/3" used in bridge cameras.

On micron's web page, they indicate that it's 1/2.5".

Wow that Christopher Smith must have tiny thumbs! I just drew a rectangle 5.8x4.3mm. That is about 1/3 the width of my thumb. So if he's in proportion he must be 2 feet tall!

And why don't they bother putting a link to the source article in as well as a generic link to micron's website. Haven't they hear of hypertext? grrr...
