Nikon intros Android-based 16-megapixel camera

Nikon today announced a 16-megapixel Android-based camera in the form of the recently rumored S800C. Featuring a 10X optical zoom and Wi-Fi support, the camera runs 2.3 Gingerbread under the hood and should be plenty powerful enough to do some editing and filters before uploading to social networks.  Thanks to full Google Play integration, the S800C is able to access hundreds of thousands of apps.

 

Other noteworthy details include the following:

  • 3.5-inch OLED display
  • 2GB internal storage
  • A-GPS for location-based apps, photos
  • 25mm to 250mm
  • Vibration reduction (VR)
  • Built-in flash
  • 8 fps stills
  • 1080p video recording

The S800C is available in either black or white options and runs $349.99 at various retailers.

Is this for you?
