In 2012, we saw a couple of point-and-shoot cameras with wireless connectivity and the full Android operating system. We liked the concept behind Samsung's $500 Galaxy Camera, but were underwhelmed by its blah photos and clunky design. The Nikon S800C, which costs $299, also shows some promise.
We expect to see more vendors offering Android cameras with built-in Wi-Fi or 4G at CES. We're hopeful that these devices will take better pictures than their predecessors. Could an Android-powered DSLR or mirrorless camera be around the corner?
