Okay, I am not sure there are other digital cameras that have Android running inside it but as far as I know, there are none. Well, until I found out about Polariod’s new digital camera that is powered by Android.
The Polaroid SC1630 Smart Camera features a 3.2 inch touchscreen and the full Android app market. It boasts a 16 megapixel camera with a 3x optical zoom and includes WIFI and Bluetooth connectivity.
Now … since we are talking about Android, this looks like an entertainment device much like the iTouch, just without phone capabilities but with a very powerful camera.
Just by looking at the photos, I would say I am impressed with this product. (photo taken from CNN)
Think Minority Report. That is always the first thing most of my friends can think of whenever some great new innovation comes to the scene.
Samsung’s transparent smart window product is not powered by Android, so they say. At least not now. Maybe in the future perhaps. For now, those who will get to buy this product should enjoy the features and how great this technology is.
Check out the video for a sample of this product in action.
Swiss Army Knife with 1TB flash drive. Awesome! $3,000. Seriously?! Who in their right mind would buy something like that when one can buy a 1TB flash drive for around $150?
Only the rich and famous that is for sure. For average people like me, I ain’t going to waste my money buying this one.
But hey! If you are all for it, then it is up to you ;). It is your money after all, right?
The flash drive is powerful though. It is capable of 22MB/s read and 15MB/s write, removable from the knife body and features a 96×49 bi-stable monochrome display which displays what is on your device and how much room you have left.
