Nikon to release Android powered camera?


Windows 8 might be an operating system that can be ran on different devices such as laptops, mobile phones and others. But an operating system that will be supporting a digital camera? I’ve got to be joking right?

According to Nikon Rumors, Japanese company Nikon is set to release their newly developed camera, and mind you, it runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

This speculation came about when Nikon Rumors was able to see a Nikon Coolpix S800 that will be running on Android that was filled with the Indonesian Communication Agency.

The Nikon Coolpix S800 features a 25-250 mm lens and a 3.5 inch OLED screen. It supports WiFi and has a built-on GPS, the former was included in the Coolpix S800 to support Android apps.

According to analysts, Nikon will first test the market for their Android powered camera as they are not sure whether the idea of having an Android OS on a camera will be bought by consumers.

If Nikon will be successful on their new venture, expect to see other camera manufacturers, such as Canon, Sony and others, to develop their own Android powered camera.

So what makes of Android powered smartphones? Which one will be cheaper?
