Samsung's Galaxy Camera looks like a standard point-and-shoot but hides a full Android handset within. The Camera sports a quad-core SoC, has a big 4.8-inch display, and cellular data connectivity for sharing pics and backing-up to the cloud. On the imaging side, it has a 21x optical zoom lens, a 16-megapixel sensor, and can record slow-motion video at an impressive 120 frames per second.

    The Galaxy Camera is a curious device, but we've learned not to discount curious devices - especially when they come to us from the company that brought the world the Galaxy Note. With the Galaxy Camera, Samsung is trying once again to turn a bold idea from left field into a commercial success. Whether they'll succeed or not remains to be seen, and the internet is already riddled with reviews and hands-on videos showing the ins and outs of this new purpose-built smart shooter. What interests us the most, though, is the Galaxy Camera's particular flavor of Android -- not some gimped, ...

    Samsung's Galaxy Camera is one of the most unusual Android devices we've seen arrive in a while, and may just foretell a future where smartphone operating systems make headway into all sorts of products beyond straight-up smartphones and tablets. AT&T introduced the Galaxy Camera to the US last month, but there have been all sorts of rumblings that we might get to see the Galaxy Camera spread its wings to another carrier, all while offering some new connectivity options. Some FCC paperwork painted the picture of Verizon getting the Galaxy Camera, and now that's essentially been ...

    There's no better news, than those that have to do with device launches. Those of you curious as to when AT&T will launch most of their fall line-up of smartphones, the wait is over. As of today you may hit AT&T stores for the HTC One X+, which is being sold for $199 after a two-year contract. That drops the price of the old HTC One X to just $99 after a contract if you're still interested. In the case of the HTC One VX, which is more of HTC's entry-level solution on the AT&T network, well that'll cost you $49.99 after a two-year contract as well. The One VX listing is still ...

    Smartphone manufacturers are showing more and more concern with the digital imaging capabilities of their handsets. Perhaps no one's making a more public display of its devotion to this idea than Nokia, with both the PureView 808 and the Lumia 920 addressing camera performance in different ways. While Nokia attempts to raise the bar when it comes to cameras on smartphones, Samsung's decided to broach the challenge from the other side, and instead of bringing high-quality imaging to a smartphone, has brought smartphone tech to a standard digital camera. We've had our eye on the Galaxy ...

    Michael and I got some to spend some time with the fine folks at AT&T at a New York City event where the company showcased their fall lineup of devices. While most of them we have seen before, there were some new devices on-hand that were just recently announced. We used the event as an opportunity to play around with some new devices, like the One X+, the One VX, the Lumia 920, and the Galaxy Camera. Check out our hands-on video below, and scroll down for some early impressions. One X+ When we reviewed the original HTC One X, we had several complaints: the camera wasn't that great, ...

    Samsung's Galaxy Camera is definitely one of the most unusual Androids we've heard announced this year. While it looks the part of a normal point-and-shoot digital camera, the big 4.8-inch display around back is wired-up to a quad-core SoC running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. With a 16-megapixel sensor and big 21x zoom lens, it should give even Nokia's PureView 808 a run for its money in the imaging department. Today AT&T announced plans to sell the camera in the coming weeks, which has us wondering what the carrier might be thinking in terms of data plans. Right now, AT&T's got ...

    I'm looking at a press release that flashed into my inbox this morning, a notice from AT&T that the company will soon be launching three new smartphones and a tablet. Surveying the list, it quickly becomes apparent that all of these newcomers have two things in common: they're all built by Samsung, and they all bear the word "Galaxy" in their names. That should come as a surprise to absolutely no one; Samsung has been using the celestial surname to denote its Android smartphone and tablet products for years. But as the South Korean OEM continues to flood the market with more and more ...

    Does the Samsung Galaxy Camera stand a chance of making a lasting dent in the world of still photography? Not if you ask Jaime Rivera, but here at IFA we have the luxury of bathing in techno-lust without the need for in-depth analysis, at least on the trade floor. Our interaction with Samsung's latest experiment was fleeting, but satisfying. Our demo unit was responsive, substantial, and magenta (natch). We enjoyed the snappy performance of Android Jelly Bean on the point-and-shoot camera's 4.8" display, and the various amateur and "professional-grade" enhancements Samsung has built in to ...

    I still remember the first time I bought a camera phone. It was the year 2004, and the device was the Motorola V600 back when the words "smart" and "phone" had never been put together officially. Having a camera on a phone back then was cool, because even though it could never beat any point-and-shoot camera, it did come in handy when you weren't carrying one. Today's editorial is mainly focused on that paradigm. How often do you carry a camera with you? I'll admit I gave my old point-and-shot to my son after I bought the iPhone 4S, and I'm sure that many of you that own either that phone ...

    Way back in February, we saw that Samsung had registered the name Galaxy Camera. Samsung really likes registering those kind of names, sometimes dozens over the course of just a few weeks, and has a habit of never releasing anything for many of them. Although we were curious at the time if we might see Samsung release an Android-powered digital camera, like Nikon recently did, the hardware never showed up, and we were beginning to think it might be another dud. Well, that's clearly not going to be the case, as we've just learned that Samsung intends to announce the Jelly-Bean-running ...
