Nikon Coolpix S800c embraces the Android operating system

A couple of days ago, we took a look at the leaked image of the Nikon Coolpix S800c, an Android-powered camera which is definitely different from the rest of the digital cameras in the market. After all, one must take note that the Nikon Coolpix S800c is not a smartphone, so just how does the Android platform fare when it is installed onto a device that functions primarily as a digital camera?

Well, you will get built-in Wi-Fi connectivity that works in a similar manner to that of a smartphone or a tablet that runs on Android, complete with Wi-Fi connectivity. Underneath the hood lies a backside illumination CMOS sensor that has an effective pixel count of 16-million pixels and a 10x optical zoom NIKKOR lens, but you can bet your bottom dollar that the Nikon Coolpix S800c will be able to shoot images in a far clearer manner under challenging conditions compared to your smartphone, regardless of how expensive the latter is. You can also record memories in Full HD resolution.

There does not seem to have any need to run the latest version of Android, so the Nikon Coolpix S800c will be powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and you can also play along to some Google apps such as Google+, YouTube, Google Maps, and Gmail that are pre-installed. [Press Release]
