When you last used a digital camera you may have considered that the firmware they run on is often clunky, slow and generally just plain poor. Finding any specific setting is often unnerving and it appears that Samsung has realised this; they may be planning a Android powered camera. This comes after Polaroid announced a Android/digital camera mash-up earlier in the year at CES.
The Korean company has filed for a “Galaxy Camera” trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) with the product type listed as a camera or camcorder. Samsung already has a good foothold in the dedicated camera market so combining two of its two strongest product areas could well be a strong combination. Besides, who wouldn’t want an Android powered camera? It would sure be nice to have applications like Paper Camera available.
Kitguru says: Although the possible use of the “Galaxy” brand doesn’t make me certain it will be Android powered, I am all for smart-cameras!
