As well as an instant digital camera, Polaroid also showed off a new camera that uses the Android operating system
Android is already available on a wealth of smartphones and tablets and now it is coming to a new digital camera from Polaroid.
The SC1630 camera, fully powered by Android, combines a 16 megapixel camera with a three times optical zoom. On one side the camera looks very much like an Android phone with a 3.2 inch touchscreen display and standard Android interface. It also has full access to the Android Market for downloading applications and games.
As well as photos the SC1630 can also capture HD video. It can connect to the internet using Wifi and there is also support for mobile data through a SIM card. Storage is handled via SD card, with sizes up to 32GB supported.
Polaroid has also developed its own photography apps for the camera. Photos are organised by data, location or the people featured in them and location tagging can also be added using the built in GPS. On board editing features include cropping, red-eye removal, resizing and colour correction. There are also a number of easy to use photo filters.
Polaroid said the camera would be available later this year, with the price yet to be decided.
