HTC Inspire camera specs don't "add" up

What gives with the HTC Inspire camera specs?  It's adverstised as having an 8 Megapixel camera but that is not what the resolutions tell me.  I have a Nokia N900 and its 5 MP camera's maximum resolution tells me it is 4.9 Mp and I have a Kodak point and shoot 10 MP camera and its maximum resolution tells me it is 9.9 something MP but my HTC Inspire maximum resolution is 3264x1952 and that is definitely NOT 8 MP but only 6.4 MP and its next lowest setting of 5 MP is really only 4 MP so AT&T what gives with advertising the Inspire as having an 8 MP camera?

What happens when you take off of widescreen?

exactly 8MP isn't widescreen. turn the setting off to get full resolution but it won't fill your screen anymore

Why question AT&T?  Why not go to the manufacturer who provides the specs to AT&T?

You will always get a better and faster response if you go to the source instead of the middleman.

Removing widescreen did the trick!  Thanks all.
