polaroid-socialmaticA couple of years ago a concept camera called Socialmatic was revealed. It was based around the design of the Instagram icon and also featured instant-printing capabilities like you would have expected from a Polaroid. The device was then made a reality and the good news for those who wouldn’t mind picking one up for themselves, you will be pleased to learn that pre-orders have gone live.

The camera’s pre-orders can now be taken via Amazon’s website where it has been priced at $300 and is expected to be released on the 1st of January, which is slightly later than what we had originally expected which was a fall release. Either way we guess better late than never, although a bit of a disappointment for those who were hoping to get it or gift it as a Christmas present.

That being said for those wondering about the specs, here’s a quick recap on what you can expect from the Socialmatic camera. It will feature a 14MP sensor along with a secondary 2MP camera which presumably will be used for selfies. It will also come with built-in WiFi capabilities to allow users to post their photos onto social networks.

Alternatively for those who’d rather have the print photo, Socialmatic will also be able to print actual photos that you can keep and frame. All of this will be powered by Android. If this sounds like a camera you’d like to own, head on over to Amazon’s website to place your pre-order.
