Nikon wants another stab at making an Android-based camera. Nikon’s first try was the S800c, but that had many limitations and therefore wasn’t that popular. There are many Android-cased cameras nowadays and Samsung is seen as the leader in this category. Samsung in fact offers high-specced phone-camera combos based on its flagship Android phones.
Nikon recently announced the S810c, a point-and-shoot camera once again based on Android but instead of Gingerbread that ran in the S800c, it runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. That should be good enough even if the latest is KitKat. The Nikon S810c has a 3.7-inch display, 16MP sensor, 12X zoom lens, GPS and headphone jack.
The Nikon S810c is priced at $350 and will be available in May. There are no details yet on pricing and availability in the Philippines.
