The Nikon Coolpix S800c is a “smart camera” with a 3.5-inch 854 x 480 OLED multitouch display and powered by a slick (and near-vanilla) Android 2.3.3 with Google services. With the built-in WiFi, you can upload your 16-megapixel images or 1080p videos straight to your various social networks or other cloud services. You can also play Angry Birds and other Android games but that 1,050mAh battery might not last long for your gaming entertainment.
The camera part of the S800c seems to be able to run independently from Android while the latter is still booting up. Rather than letting the device stay on standby like most other Android devices, Nikon used a shut-down timer that activates once Android goes on standby. When the camera’s completely switched off, you can hit the power button and you’ll go straight into camera mode which lets you shoot immediately, then about half a minute later the interface seamlessly goes back to smart mode, which is when you can hit the back or home button to toggle the Android unlock screen.
The Nikon Coolpix S800c was said to be available in the US next month for $350 and in the UK for £379. So that’s around 15k in Philippine pesos.
