Nikon has announced a new digital camera that is its second offering to run the Android operating system. Nikon calls the camera the Coolpix S810C and it runs Android 4.2.2. Having Android on board opens the camera up for all sorts of tasks.
You can cause the camera to download apps from Google Play and upload images and video directly to social networks via the official Android apps. You can also send email from the camera causing Gmail to people without having to mess with transferring the photos or video to a PC first.
The camera has Wi-Fi only meaning you will need to be near a hotspot to connect to the web. Nikon gave the S810c 12x optical zoom and that range can be extended with digital zoom if wanted. The camera also has vibration reaction to keep the images sharp at all zoom levels.
The native resolution of the camera is 16MP and it can record full HD resolution video. If you are away from a network, the camera has an app that makes it easy to transfer content to a mobile device to upload on the go. Pricing and availability information is unknown at this time.
