Nikon Coolpix S800c camera runs Android Gingerbread

As you probably know our main food for thought is to do with smartphones, tablets, apps and accessories for the mobile space, but on odd occasions something comes along that we feel we need to share with out readers that falls outside our usual tech diet, and one such tech gizmo has caught our attention today that our Android faithful readers just might be interested in, an Nikon camera.

The Nikon camera in question is the Nikon Coolpix S800c, and is brought to our attention by the guys over at Nikon Rumours, who have posted a couple of photos of the camera, but the main point of interest with the Nikon Coolpix S800c is that the device is powered by Android.

Spec wise there isn’t a great deal of info on the camera but it is said to sport a 3.5-inch OLED touch screen with a 25-250mm lens, GPS, WiFi, will apparently run all Google Play apps and run the Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system.

There are two version, one that appears to be the Android Nikon Coolpix S800c showing off that Android touch screen, and one that looks to be a normal point and shoot camera. The Android version would presumably come with a custom camera app pre-installed on the device.

Other than that, it appears that Nikon is expecting to announce the Nikon Coolpix S800c Android camera next Wednesday the 22nd of August, which hopefully will also include just how much this Android based camera will set you back.

And that’s your lot for now, other than asking, would any of our Android faithful readers like to own an Android based camera to go along with their smartphone and tablet?

    This is great, having something like this turns smartphone with great quality camera together. I like to send pictures I made to social networks, internet and even best smartphone with camera never gave me the joy of sending it with crap quality.
    This camera will change it.
    Can’t wait to have it. I hope price in UK will reasonable.

      the problem though is no matter how good this is you will still be limited by the speed of your bandwidth and the quality degradation on media uploads by these social networks sites themselves …great innovation though been telling friends one day satnavs to everyday electronics like LCD tv would incorporate android OSs …now it’s becoming a reality 🙂
