Apps and pictures combine as Nikon takes the phone function out of a smartphone operating system
Nikon has announced the Coolpix S800c, a new camera that runs the Android operating system normally found on mobile phones.
The 16 megapixel camera costs £380, has a 10 times optical zoom and a 3.5inch touchscreen.
The camera runs Android 2.3, an old version of the operating system used on smartphones. It can run apps downloaded from the Google Play store and photos taken can be edited on the camera and shared to social networks.
This isn't the first time a camera company has attempted to meld together lens and app. Polaroid released a similar device earlier this year.
