yes the article looks like it did get it backwards...ccds are slowly switching to cmos technology, not the other way around. OVTI's 5 megapixel chip places it dead center in the sweetspot of 2005 CCD still digital camera market...watch out Christmas 2005...explosion of 3-5 megapixel cell phones; 5 megapixel CMOS digital cameras for an incredibly cheap price.
Key to all this is how much market share OVTI can caputre, because volume is the name of the game here. The shorts think that all of the other maufacturers will eat Omnivision's lunch, but OVTI clearly has a lead, plus they have the smallest footprint, simple system-on-one-chip design, and lowest power consumption of anyone's CMOS chips out there. So I think it's a bargain.
