Nikon Releases Android-powered S800c
Android-based digital cameras are nothing new and more manufacturers are taking advantage of the open source mobile platform. Nikon is releasing its first Android camera, the CoolPix S800c, which uses a build based on the Gingerbread (Android 2.3). The camera is not intended to be used for advanced communication and running demanding apps, so an older Android version should be sufficient. The Nikon CoolPix S800c has WiFi capability to share images and videos to a cloud service. The 680MB of usable internal storage can be used to install photography-related or even light games from Google Play store.
Its 16Mp of dedicated camera sensor obviously beats all smartphones, including the Samsung Galaxy S3. Even so, the Nokia 808 PureView with its mighty 41Mp software-based image output capability still easily surpasses the highest resolution of the CoolPix S800c. Like any digital camera in the market, the CoolPix S800c also supports up to 32GB of SD memory card.
