Samsung might be at the wrong end of the stick in their fight against Apple, but the company is set to release their latest Galaxy device later this week in the IFA electronics trade show in Berlin.
According to GSM Arena, Samsung is going to unveil their latest device, which is an Android powered camera.
The report says that this camera will come with a 16 MP sensor and will be running on Google Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It is also reported that it will have a 4.8 inch screen similar to that of the Galaxy S III.
It is said that this Android powered camera will have an integrated cellular connection so that you can automatically send the photos your just took to your social networking sites such as Instagram and Facebook.
About a month or two ago, Japanese camera maker Nikon released their own version of the Android powered camera.
Though it only runs on the Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS, users can access the Google Play marketplace through the device.
During the Consumer Electronics Show last January, Polaroid unveiled their own version of an Android powered camera. But it hasn’t been released to the market yet.
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?
