Following Nikon’s android camera, and not losing a beat after its big patent loss to Apple, Samsung launches a Galaxy camera. Lots of coverage, ranging from “yet another” android smartphamera (gets the award for awkward cleverness) to “crazy attempt” to fuse smartphone and point-and-shoot.
Samsung has added some interesting twists on just having Instagram and other photo apps in your digicam. Like Nikon, they have easy sharing with Facebook (FB) et al. Beyond Nikon, and as a part of their fight with Apple (AAPL), they offer their sCloud version of Apple’s iCloud, which automatically uploads all your photos to Samsung’s cloud. Other cloud services, like Dropbox and SugarSync also do this, and free you from the clutches of the phone vendor; still, this is a very good idea.
As a camera, it has a huge 4.8″ view screen, 16 megapixe sensor, and a 21x optiocal zoom. Pricing unkown.
