Images leak of Nikon's Android-powered camera
A couple of weeks ago we brought you news of Nikon’s upcoming Android-powered Coolpix S800c, and now Nikon Rumors has posted images of what appears to be the camera in question. The requisite inspection inside of Photoshop doesn’t turn up any obvious evidence of forgery, and Nikon Rumors has a good track record, so it’s likely that we are looking at the real thing. Or at least mostly the real thing - two different cameras are shown, one that looks like a “normal” point and shooter and  a later addition that appears intended to be held vertically - although the second vertical camera looks less convincing (see slide show below).

The back side of the camera is shown as being dominated by a touchscreen that appears to be running stock Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). Presumably it would also come installed with a custom camera app, and moreover one that would trigger anytime the camera is being used to, you know, shoot pictures. Otherwise the whole affair would feel a bit too much like an Android PMP grafted onto the back of a camera.

We should find out more soon, as according to NR the announcement for the new camera is coming this week. Anyone interested in picking up an Android-powered camera?
