Tokyo-based Konica Corp. has today announced a new credit-card shaped digital camera with an LCD display, the Konica Revio C2.

Powered by two AAA batteries, the Revio C2 is an impressive 13.5 millimeters thick, and somehow finds room to fit a 1.6" LCD display into its tiny package. As you'd expect on a camera this small, the 1.2 megapixel CMOS imager is coupled with a fixed focal-length, fixed focus lens. Specifications courtesy of Konica Germany follow:
