Sony's sensor is a 1/2.8" back-illuminated Exmor R model, IMX081PQ sensor, which is the industries smallest 1.12μm unit cell size and is capable of shooting 1080p at 30fps and 720p at 60fps.

 

Sony does claim to have ironed out some of the problems related to the very small pixel sizes by introducing a unique formation of photo diodes to achieve a sensor with a high resolution, high sensitivity and low noise.

 

ETA is currently January 2011.
