Polaroid camera is Android powered

 Polaroid iM1836The Polaroid iM1836 is the first Android-powered, compact, interchangeable-lens, mirrorless camera. The 18-megapixel camera debuted at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Produced by Sakar, an authorized Polaroid licensee, the camera features the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system and comes standard with a 10-30 mm optical zoom lens.

Apparently all existing Micro Four Thirds system lenses will work with the iM1836 via an adapter.

The camera has a 3.5-inch touchscreen LCD, Android interface/menu, auto blink detection, auto face exposure, and pop-up flash. It also will capture 1080p HD video. With built-in peer-to-peer Wi-Fi and Polaroid photo sharing apps on board, the camera lets users instantly upload and share images with friends via Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flikr, Vimeo and more, all at the touch of a button. When Wi-Fi isn’t available, built-in Bluetooth connectivity pairs the camera with any Bluetooth-enabled device to upload images and video through a mobile phone, PC or even iPod Touch.

It’s scheduled to hit US retail before the end of March; no word on Canada.
