Samsung Galaxy Camera with LTE supposedly headed to Verizon
Whether you like the idea or not, Android-based cameras are now something you can buy. The $350 Nikon Coolpix S800c, for example, was announced back in August, while AT&T is selling the Samsung Galaxy Camera for $500. Buying the latter model will also mean you'll be getting cellular connectivity on the device via the carrier's cellular data network, so you'll be able to surf the web or download apps.
However, AT&T might not be the only U.S. carrier interested in the Samsung Galaxy Camera. The device just appeared at the FCC with support for Verizon LTE bands. This, of course, does not guarantee that Big Red will launch it, but it definitely raises the chances of that happening in the near future.
For those who need a refresher, the Samsung Galaxy Camera is a 16MP point-and-shoot with 21x optical zoom running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. It is powered by a quad-core processor and on its back resides a 4.8-inch touchscreen. You can't use it to make phone calls, but the Google Play software catalog is at your disposal.
