Nikon’s rumored Android camera is not a rumor anymore, the android camera which goes by the name Nikon Coolpix S800c has made its debut yesterday and features Android 2.3 Gingerbread while priced at $350.
Apparently, the pictures of the mystery Nikon Android camera were already leaked day before yesterday and even though there was no mention of the official name, the picture was more than enough to confirm the existence of this device.
The Nikon Coolpix S800c features a 16MP BSI CMOS sensor with 10x wide optical zoom and is fully capable of recording full HD 1080p videos. The device has built in GPS and WiFi, hence enabling features like Geo-tagging and picture sharing on social networking sites from the camera itself.
Nikon Coolpix S800c also comes with a 3.5 inch 800×480 OLED touchscreen, 4GB of internal storage and Android v2.3 Gingerbread. While some might think that the 4GB of internal space is little less, specially considering that the device will be storing full HD videos which sometimes accounts for GBs of space themselves, we are completely sold out on the fact that there is finally a point and shoot camera which features Android as its OS and has full access to Google Play Store.
A full access to Google Play Store means that there will be no need of a computer to do simple photo editing tasks and if provided a WiFi connection, pictures can be uploaded on Facebook or Twitter from the camera itself.
We must hand it over to Nikon for bundling so many features in the Nikon Coolpix S800c and yet managed to keep the price just $350.
So what will you prefer Will you spend $350 on an Android that is almost a year old or you would rather wait till other companies follows Nikon Coolpix S800c footsaateps and release their own Android based camera?
