New Nikon Coolpix breaks ground with Google's Android OS

Nikon recently announced the Wi-Fi-enabled 16-megapixel Coolpix S800c basic camera—the first camera on the market that runs Google's Android operating system (version 2.3). 

Nikon has made a momentous technological stride by implementing the Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system in their newest version of the Coolpix camera. The S800c comes equipped with standard features you'd find in a viable point-and-shoota 1/2.3-inch 16-megapixel backside-illuminated CMOS sensor, a Nikon Expeed C2 processing engine, and a 10x f3.2-5.8 25-250mm lens with optical image stabilization—but with the addition of Android's OS, downloadable apps, Wi-fi, and a 3.5-inch, 819K-dot OLED touch screen. BOOM. Photojournalists, you're welcome.

Nikon weren't the first. Polaroid's SC1630 was introduced at CES in January 2012, though it has since disappeared from their site.
