If you were hoping for a world where you would only need to carry around one camera, and that camera was simply an app within your increasingly capable smartphone, that world might be closer than you think. Google's Senior VP of Engineering, Vic Gundotra, talked over his Google+ account this morning through a photography-themed post to reply to comments regarding the quality of Nexus-branded cameras. The conversation:
We should see future Nexus devices with much better camera abilities, and I think we should hopefully see something unveiled during Google I/O in a couple of months time. Having to "wait and see" just teases us, but we should see Google do something with their Motorola acquisition, as well as their Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie OS, let's just wait and see, shall we?
