AT&T announces Samsung Galaxy Camera price and release date
If you've been eying Samsung's Android-powered camera, the Galaxy Camera, you'd like to know that AT&T has just announced that beginning November 16, it will be selling the Galaxy Camera for $499.99. Customers will be able to pick one of the carrier's new shared data plans, or one of the available individual or family plans.

With the Galaxy Camera, Samsung is trying to reinvent the digital camera, adding features like the Android operating system, a large touchscreen and lots of other goodies. Users will be able to enjoy the full beauty of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on a large, 4.8" Super Clear LCD touchscreen, powered by a quad-core 1.4 GHz processor. The camera itself is a 16MP one with a backside illuminated CMOS sensor, allowing for up to 21x optical zoom.

AT&T uses this occasion to remind us that with the purchase of a Samsung Galaxy device with a two-year contract, its customers will receive up to $100 off the price of a second Samsung Galaxy device purchase, including the Camera.

Alright, you geeky shutterbugs, if you want, you can find even more details in the press release below!

That is the Full Retail Price, PhoneArena's article is iNcomplete; you can buy the camera without service and use iWiFi or, if you have a Share Plan, add it as one of your "shared" devices.

Personally, I know a few people who wanted this but, without a radio for Voice this is useless to them!!

i wouldn't want to use this as a phone. i think its designed more as a point & shoot option for ppl like myself who are mildly into photography but not willing to fork over the cash for a DSLR camera. this is KIND OF cheaper...i guess.

The only way id buy this is if i were a photographer and i use social media to display my pictures.....other than that, it can stay where it is

and this is a Camera . and the cool thing about it is that it has a full PC in it. you can photoshop the photoes the same way you do on a standard PC without the NEED of a PC when you travel .

this thing is AWSOME .

plus the Screen. where can you find a Camera with such screen ?

Though I will admit this camera may have potential and I do like the concept behind it, I find great humor in purchasing a contract with it.

Guys, I don't think it's on contract. It's just possible to put it on a shared data plan if you so choose.

Well, with a company like AT&T, once they post the data plans available for this camera, I can assure you it'll be the "customers" that receive the "short-end" of the stick.
