Polaroid confirms it will introduce an Android-based interchangeable lens camera at CES 2013
Polaroid has now confirmed that it will introduce the first Android-based camera with interchangeable lenses at CES 2013 in mid-January. The camera maker teased the announcement to Imaging Resources, but gave no further specifics.

There will be an Android powered, interchangeable lens camera introduced by Polaroid at CES 2013," Scott Hardy, Polaroid president and chief executive wrote in an email. "Additional information and specs will be released during the show."

This confirms rumors about a compact mirrorless camera that showed on various websites just yesterday. The alleged name of the camera will be the Polaroid IM1836, and it is expected to be manufactured by Sakar.

Rumors speak about an 18.1-megapixel sensor, a 3.5-inch display and Android 4.x running on the camera.

As awesome as this sounds, we are not yet sure whether you’d be able to purchase this camera. Last year, Polaroid was also at CES unveiling its Android-based SC1630 16-megapixel point-and-shoot, but the camera never made it to retail shelves. Let’s hope this one would be different.

I hope Polaroid is able to get its act together. They were a significant player in photography back in the day. They would be a worthy competitor.

The great part about interchangeable lenses on a phone means if you don't plan on taking pictures, you can just take off the lense and get rid of the bulk in your pocket but when you do need them, you can always throw one on. Not a bad idea.

I think the Polaroid announcement is for a camera integrated with the Internet using Android as the integration interface between camera and Internet. Like what Sammy did with the Galaxy Camera. Time will tell.
