Polaroid revealed their very own Android digital camera, the iM1836 (wants a catchier name), yesterday to rival that of the Samsung Galaxy Camera. The most important difference between the Polaroid iM1836 and the Samsung Galaxy Camera is that the iM1836 could have an interchangeable lens.
The digicam was created by Polaroid’s companion, Sakar, and shall be coming in the following specs:
- 3.5-inch LCD contact display
- 10-30mm zoom lens
- Android 4.1 Jelly Bean (Android 4.2 Jelly Bean replace coming quickly)
- Compatibility with Micro Four Thirds lens (when you've got an non-compulsory adapter)
- Abillity to shoot 1080p video
- HDMI out
- WiFi (no compatibility for service knowledge plans)
The Polaroid iM1836 will retail for about $399, which is $100 cheaper than AT&T and $150 cheaper than Verizon Wi-fi, and will probably be launched Q1 of this year. The shortage of information plan compatibility is perhaps a deal breaker for many people, as a result of that might mean you'd always need to be close to a WiFi spot, or you would need to tether your telephones web to the device. The contact display can be rather a lot smaller in comparison with the Samsung Galaxy Digicam’s.
However for $one hundred cheaper, and with interchangeable lenses, this may be the Android digicam many users will opt for. What are your thoughts on this camera? Do you suppose Polaroid can compete within the Android market?
