Polaroid purportedly working on Android camera with interchangeable lenses

Polaroid’s name is being tossed back in the rumor mill as a hardware maker said to be designing an Android-based camera. Some readers may recall the camera company demonstrating a device at CES last year that had a Gingerbread (Android 2.3) experience.

Looking ahead, it is being reported that Polaroid is prepping a mirrorless interchangable-lens camera which runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich under the hood. With a hardware design that closely resembles a Nikon 1 J series camera, the Polaroid IM1836 is said to feature an 18.1-megapixel sensor with an interchangeable-lens system. The backside will host a 3.5-inch touchscreen and the camera will offer HDMI output, Wi-Fi connection, and a pop-up flash.

With CES just a few weeks away we expect to learn more about the camera in short order. Have you given any more thought to the idea of owning a digital camera with Android at its core?
