updated 01:01 am EDT, Wed August 22, 2012

Camera supports Google Play apps

Confirming recent rumors, Nikon has officially unveiled its first Android-based point-and-shoot, the S800c, which pairs camera functionality with smartphone features, sans calling capabilities. The Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) operating system provides full support for Google Play apps, while enabling users to take advantage of Wi-Fi connectivity for image sharing and GPS for location tagging.

The mobile OS is presented on a 3.5-inch OLED touchscreen with 800x480 resolution, while the wireless connection can be used to directly transfer full-resolution images to other Android- or iOS-powered devices. The camera works with Nikon's Picturetown service for cloud storage and sharing via Flickr or other networks.

As a camera, the S800c is outfitted with a 25mm to 250mm (35mm to 135mm equivalent) lens with 10x optical zoom. Lens-shift vibration reduction aims to reduce blurry shots, while the 16-megapixel CMOS sensor offers backside illumination for improved low-light performance. The image processing engine is also capable of recording 1080p video at 30 frames per second.

Nikon is expected to ship the S800c sometime next month.
