Samsung introduced the new Android Galaxy camera in late 2012. When the camera first hit the market, many reviewers dismissed it as a gimmicky camera that was going nowhere. To make matters worse, the camera was tied down with carrier contracts.
Now, Samsung has managed to break away from those contracts. The new Android cameras from Samsung will soon be WiFi only. This news makes the Samsung Android camera a lot more appealing to consumers who weren’t thrilled with the idea of a camera contract.
Not only is Samsung’s Android camera breaking free of contracts, this new camera does actually have a lot to offer. If you’re looking for a camera that’s connected, is a simple point-and-click type, and comes with a reasonable price tag, Samsung might have the camera you’re looking for. Here are some things about the Samsung Android camera that you might have missed the first time around.
Share, Share, and Share Some More!
Don’t underestimate the power of sharing. How many times per day do you check your smartphone looking for status updates? How often do you share your photographs with friends and family members on social networks? Samsung’s new camera allow you to take great photographs with a real camera (as opposed to a smartphone camera), and then share those photographs with anyone you like thanks to this camera’s connectivity options. Sharing using this camera is simple too.
In fact, Samsung has made all of the new Android camera’s functions user-friendly. This camera is responsive, built well, and really simple to use. If you’re not the type who likes to fuss with photographs, the Samsung Android camera is an excellent option. The whole point of this camera is to provide users with a customizable Android camera that allows for instant sharing options. All you need now is a WiFi connection. Do you enjoy snapping and sharing? If so, this camera is for you. So how much will the new Android camera set you back?
Pricing and Availability
Samsung announced yesterday that the Android camera is ready for retail sale. But, the company has not yet announced a price to go along with the camera. I’m betting that the Android camera will be somewhere around the $300 range, but this could be way off.
Seemingly, Samsung will want to attach an affordable price tag to the Android camera, so that many different types of consumers can purchase the camera. At this price, the Android camera probably won’t appeal to a serious camera crowd, but that’s not Samsung’s target market anyway.
Supposedly, you should be able to purchase this camera today. However, Samsung hasn’t made it clear where you can purchase the new camera. When there are additional details to note, I’ll make sure to keep you updated.
In the meantime, you can check out the camera details on the Samsung site if you are located in the U.S. If you are located outside of the U.S., you can take a look at the camera pic posted with this article (namely, in Canada!).
