GE Cameras Hit US Shops
Two of the USA's largest general retailers will be the first to carry the new GE digital camera range, General Imaging revealed today. Three models are expected to reach both Kmart and Sears and will include special store-only versions of one model. The basic 7-megapixel A730 will be available to both companies in GE's glossy black, but the 8-megapixel A830 will be available in different colors depending on the store: a white version will appear only at Sears, while Kmart will sell the same camera in blue. A navy-tinted version of the ultra-compact, 7-megapixel G1 (pictured) will also reach Sears outlets.
Other cameras in GE's range will remain out of stores for now and haven't yet been scheduled. The three models on offer will reach both retailers by the Memorial Day weekend at prices of $130 for the A730, $150 for the A830, and $200 for the G1, dropping slightly below the estimated minimum prices from the series debut in March.
