Kodak-branded Android handset tipped for CES
CES will bring us lots of new devices from many of your favorite mobile brands when the show gets started in Las Vegas in two weeks. The Pocketnow crew will be on the ground to cover all the big announcements, but beyond those familiar manufactures like Sony and Samsung, plenty of other companies will be showing up to demo their latest gear. Today we get a little heads-up about a new face that will be bringing some hardware to CES, as Kodak throws its hat into the smartphone and tablet ring.
We’re promised what will ultimately be a whole range of Android phones and tablets with “bespoke image capture, management and sharing features,” all featuring the Kodak brand. The hardware will be made by Bullitt, the same company behind that Caterpillar-branded Android we checked out a couple years back.
Maybe Kodak and Bullitt are saving some of the best stuff for CES itself, but reading this press release we’re just the slightest bit worried about how there’s no mention of any imaging hardware at all – lots of talk about pre-loaded software to help with image management and all that, but nothing about megapixels, lenses, or anything else we would expect to be a major talking point for a Kodak smartphone.
The first Kodak phone will debut at CES, with further devices, including more phones, a tablet, and a smart camera, premiering later this year.
