What do you get when you combine Polaroid’s legendary history with the power of the Android OS? You get an intriguing new camera concept introduced at CES of course. Polaroid is looking to make a new mark in photography while utilizing 21st century technology by introducing the SC1630 Smart Camera. The SC1630 has some breathtaking features as well. For starters, Polaroid has managed to squeeze in a 16MP camera with 3x optical zoom, a 3.2-inch touchscreen and WiFi capability. All of these noteworthy features will look to fully harness the full potential and power of the Android operating system. An example of this is full and complete access to the Android Market— meaning you’ll be able to score any of the photo editing, camera, and photobooth apps which users can then use to create almost limitless possibilities with snapping pics and photos.
With a 16MP camera– I’d be willing to bet that most people are ready and willing to jump on the phone if available to them. Speaking of which, there’s no word on the exact release date of the camera. The only thing we can expect is the SC1630 Smart Camera to be “available in 2012″— meaning we probably won’t be expecting to take those high quality pictures using the cool camera anytime soon. Hit the break for the full press release from Polaroid. » Read the rest
