The hugely rumored Nikon Android camera is indeed real. Nikon Coolpix S800c digital camera has been made official and it runs the good old Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS. Thanks to Google Play store, you can install any of the camera apps including *cough* Instagram *cough* or even access your Google Drive account!
To make it very clear, Nikon Coolpix S800c is a full-fledged Digital camera. It has everything you’d expect from a Point-n-shoot camera. It comes with a 16-megapixel CMOS sensor, a 10x zoom lens ranging from 25-250mm, a built-in flash, shooting up to eight frames per second & 1080p full HD video recording capability.
Nikon Coolpix S800c Specs & Features
The best part about Nikon S800c is the smart Wi-Fi feature. Having a Wi-Fi on a digital camera is not new. But none of these cameras were able to make use of Wi-Fi as there was no proper interface and integrated features. This is where Android on S800c changes the game. Even an age-old Gingerbread OS can make the Wi-Fi smart and useful. Users can now realistically make use of the Wi-Fi feature by transferring their photos to their Google Drive or Dropbox cloud storage on-the-fly.
