Samsung Galaxy range swallows cameras
We’ve written before about the first Android-powered camera, but the idea tickles me and here’s another more recent example. Samsung is extending its Galaxy range even further to include cameras…
Measuring 128.7 x 70.8 x 19.1mm (W x H x D), the Samsung Galaxy Camera (EK-GC100) is an Android 4.1-based digicam featuring 1 or 2.3-inch image sensors supporting 16.3 mega pixels or 17 mega pixels images.
Features include “shoot and share” via wireless comms and an auto upload feature to save pics to the Cloud. Apps such as Instagram are also available, of course.
It’s now available, for example from John Lewis, for £399.95.
