An Android-Powered Camera

Normally I don't blog about new product announcements, but this one is notable in an pretty unique way. It's another story of the convergence of cell phone technology and digital cameras. But in this case, it's not another smart phone that's designed to take great pictures. In fact it's a point-and-shoot camera that's got a smartphone's Android operating system built in. It's the new Nikon Coolpix S800c, a compact camera that captures 16-megapixel stills and full HD video, and allows you to easily share them via wi-fi to upload them straight to the web. This makes sharing online with this camera just as easy as it is with a smartphone. Even more, it includes typical smartphone capabilities like email, gps positioning and more thanks to apps downloaded from the Google Play store. It's the first of something pretty unique, and I'm guessing this won't be the last of its breed.
