Polaroid SC1630

When you think of Polaroid, the first thought that comes in to your head probably isn't of an Android-powered, 16 megapixel smart camera with a 3x optical zoom lens. But as their CES announcement shows, the company are leaving their instant polaroids behind to, as they say, deliver 'everything expected from a digital camera' with the bonus of Android features being built in.

As well as capturing and connecting online to instantly share images and video, the SC1630 can access Google's Android Market, which means you can access over 400,000 apps and view them on the camera's 3.2in display.

There are 18 scene modes available as well as face and smile detection. Smart Albums organise the photos for you and geo-tagging adds longitude and latitude coordinates to photos.

Cropping, red-eye removal, resizing and colour correction options are available in-camera and can hold up to 32Gb of memory via a microSD card.

The Polaroid SC1630 Smart Camera will be available in April 2012. The camera is currently running Android 2.3.4, however they say that it will be updated before release. Price is TBC.
