It’s not the first time we’ve heard about an Android powered zoom capable pocket camera, and it probably won’t be the last. You may have seen Nikon’s S800c, quite a chunky little monkey because it’s not an Android phone but an Android camera.
Well, camera quality wise PureView has already been besting the top high end point and shoots and taking swipes at DSLRs, so maybe not. Certainly not on Rich Recording. But if the public become interested, they might find it more attractive to go down the Android camera route than the relatively unknown (damn you Nokia for not advertising PureView enough/at all) Nokia PureView. Plus the Coolpix thing above is only around 350USD (I don’t think it’s a phone though).
16MP, 10X optical zoom. Nikon’s image stabilisation with VGA 240FPS mode. Not bad. Not so sure about the rest of the Android experience on this one.
Something a little more scary perhaps is a SGSIII equivalent Samsung pocket cam.
Canon might join the boat too. Nokia’s got to hurry and get PureView out to more places! Bring us new PureView devices please! ASAP!
