You could almost argue (not having calls and texts aside) that this nikon camera has possibly more smartphone functionality,customization and usability with 2.3 gingerbread than the nokia 808 has as a smartphone with a good camera.

Same here and I second that! I've been using Belle for 2months before selling my N8. Belle is functional but lags as hell and it feels like a cheap rip off of Android.

Another avenue for android to expand in and increase its market share in. Its a good idea and no doubt other camera manfactueres will follow suit. We could be seeing a totally new type of android device niche here.

2. Nikon's responses to the rise of cameraphone : making an android-powered digicam.

Congratulations, Nikon. You have just guaranteed that I will never purchase any of your cameras.
