    As the point and shoot camera market is facing a tough competition with the camera equipped smartphones market share, hence major camera manufacturers are prepping more and more killer imaging technology to batten their offerings. However, it seems Nikon has something different in their mind, when it comes to experinting with the software technologies.

    It can be said, as NikonRumors have recently posted leaked press shots of the an Android-based Coolpix “s800c” camera by the China based manufacturer. Yes, it is true that Nikon is expected to bring the first Android powered camera in the market. According to a reports, the upcoming Coolpix S800c will run on the stock Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS, with the complete access to the Google Play Store.

    Earlier, NikonRumors also reported that the company is planning to launch the Coolpix S800 on August 22 this year.

    What Features to Expect?

    The leaked s800c pictures reveal a touchscreen menu on the backside, apparently running a Gingerbread flavor, with apps for a camera, email, browser, music, etc. Additional specs labeled on the front of the camera detail a “12X Wide Optical Zoom ED VR” in HD and a 4.5-54.0mm stock lens. NikonRumors, which has a decent track record in scooping Nikon, first discovered the s800c in a filling with the Indonesian Communication Agency. It originally noted the camera would tout a 3.5-inch OLED screen, a 25-250 mm Nikkor lens, in-built Wi-Fi and GPS connectivity and complete support to Google Play Store.

    At the same time, it can be noted that the two images differ in terms of the optical zoom ED lens, with one showing 12X and the other showing 3X. Hence the big question over here is will Nikon unveil different variants?

    Pricing & Availability

    Nikon is reportedly planning to officially unwrap the Coolpix S800c on August 22, 2012. However, there is no word about the price of the Android camera from the Japanese company.

    Do let us know in comments, are you willing to shell out a large amount for an Android-powered camera? or Would you prefer an Android smartphone with all these specs?
