Nikon has just announced its first digital camera running Android (2.3 Gingerbread) – the Nikon S800c. We’ll start to see a range of consumer electronics running Android in the coming years and cameras are a logical place to start given the crossover that already exists with mobile phones. Many of our readers are the early adopters that would be potential buyers of products like this, so we’d like to hear what you think of it.
As far as digital cameras go, the Nikon S800c specs are towards the top of the compact range and it then has the added benefits of Android functionality – being able to easily install apps to easily share photos video and apply filters. However, with a reported UK price tag of £379.99, that’s quite a premium that you’d be paying to have Android built in. It also seems especially high given the US price tag of $349.95. The S800c is due for release on September 27th, so there could still be room for a bit of movement on the price.
We’re keen to know your thoughts on the Android camera, so please vote in our poll or leave a comment below.
