Nikon Coolpix S810c runs on Android
A digital camera with an operating system that one would normally find on a smartphone? That would definitely sound as though the geek who spoke this had not yet slept through his hangover the night before if this were to happen a decade back, but in this day and age, just about anything is possible. So too, should one not doubt the existence of the Android totin’ Nikon Coolpix S810c digital camera.
The Nikon Coolpix S810c is a compact digital camera that comes equipped with Google’s Android operating system alongside built-in Wi-Fi connectivity which will combine advanced functions with ease of use. This single camera will target those who enjoy taking pictures, viewing them, and using them to connect with others. For starters, it will arrive with a 12x optical zoom NIKKOR lens, 16.0-million pixels, and a backside illumination CMOS sensor that support capture of images exhibiting superior image quality.
There is also a newly adopted comment function that enables users to add their very own comments, including their impression of the scene, right after the shutter is released, allowing you to remain in the moment for as long as possible, since it might be possible to convey in words right there and then on the spot. Needless to say, such a function enables users to enjoy a new way of taking and sharing photos.
The Nikon Coolpix S810c run on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, where hooking up to the Internet via Wi-Fi is a snap, considering how the user interface would be familiar to those who use Android devices, as the operations are similar to those used with on an Android platform. You can post both photos and movies which were recorded with this digital camera, straight to social networking services (SNS) such as Google+, Facebook and Twitter. The Nikon Coolpix S810c is priced at $350 a pop when it arrives later this May.
