Polaroid SC1630 16MP Smart Camera Runs Android

 |  |  |  |  |  January 12, 2012


While there was no Lady Gaga to present this Polaroid camera at CES, it still has some interesting features, since the whole thing is powered by Android. In a world with powerful cameras integrated into every smartphone, why shouldn’t it makes sense to have Android run a camera instead?

Polaroid’s latest digital camera, the SC1630, is an Android-powered smart camera, with a 16MP sensor as well as a 3× optical zoom (and 5× digital zoom). It also offers automatic face and smile detection, red-eye removal, color correction and geo-tagging of images.

The SC1630 packs a touchscreen display and Wi-Fi connectivity which allow you to easily upload your photos with a single button. The 3.2-inch screen (800×480 resolution) allows you to preview images nicely. In terms of storage, it can hold up to 32GB, via a microSD card – though it’s unclear if this will be included in the price.

It also offers all of the abilities normally associated with Android, such as web browsing, a calendar, email and app downloads. So basically, it’s a smartphone without the phone – and none of the carrier contracts that usually go with. The Polaroid SC1630 should be released this April and will sell for $299 (USD).
