Nikon Unveils Android Camera Coolpix S800c

Nikon has launched its first Android powered camera, Coolpix S800c. This camera features a 10x optical zoom lens, 16 megapixel BSI CMOS  sensor, 3.5″ inch OLED WVGA touchscreen. It also comes  with Wi-Fi connectivity and supports downloading Android apps via Google Play Store.  With the S800c, users can capture full HD 1080p HD videos. It also has built-in GPS. Nikon also bundles ‘My Picture Town’ app for uploading  images directly to its cloud storage.

Powered by Android 2.3, the camera’s connection features allow users to seamlessly connect, browse and upload to their social networks, including Google+, Facebook and Twitter. Users can also take advantage of the full functionality of Android technology to surf the web or even download applications and games onto their S800c. Just like a smartphone or tablet device, the camera has the opportunity to run camera-specific photo and video applications.

“With the new Coolpix S800c, Nikon designed a camera for users looking to  capture stunning images and videos with a compact digital camera but  also want to share their content with their friends and family in a  familiar way,” said Bo Kajiwara, Vice President of Marketing, Planning  and Customer Experience, Nikon Inc.

The S800c will  go on sale next month for a suggested retail price of $349.95. This camera will be available in Black & White colours. India launch and India price has not been disclosed yet by the company.

After resounding success of Android OS, it was logical for camera manufacturing companies to make their camera more smarter by introducing Android OS with its plethora of applications. Before this, smart TV’s have already arived and  we can now look forward to have more smart devices which will be using Android OS.
