Nikon to expand Android OS to cameras
The full list of rumored specs include:
- 25-250 mm lens
- 3.5" OLED screen
- The camera runs all Google Play apps
- The camera will probably run Android 2.3
- Built-in GPS
- Built-in Wi-Fi
- Possible announcement: August 22, 2012
The lack of a cell radio means that these cameras won’t truly be mobile devices, but with built in Wi-Fi and a full-fledged mobile operating system it’s not hard to imagine that offloading picture to the cloud and direct posting to social media could be popular features for the point and shoot crowd. It’s not hard to imagine this sort of feature creeping up into the prosumer digital SLR cameras if they find success with the initial model.
What about you guys? Do you want a camera with a mobile OS running on it, or are you satisfied with the not-so-smart cameras? Or heck, have you already eschewed cameras altogether in favor of the phone camera that is always in your pocket?
