While it is still regarded by some as an oddity, we here at Android Authority are fans of the the Samsung Galaxy Camera, as evidenced in our review of it last month. Now even more people will have a chance to try it out, as it is now available in Canada.
The Samsung Galaxy Camera is among the most unique Android devices. It’s not a phone or a tablet. It’s a point and shoot camera running Jelly Bean with some pretty awesome specs. It has already been announced for AT&T and it’s available with no contract for $499.99. According to a product page that no longer exists, it’s also headed to Verizon. Engadget and The Verge have both reported that Samsung launched a product page proclaiming the Galaxy Camera was on its way to Verizon. However, mere hours later, Samsung pulled the product page. There is no shadow of a doubt…
The Samsung Galaxy Camera has been out for a few weeks now in the U.S. via AT&T, although a new Verizon variant apparently will be released as well. If you’ve been thinking about importing one to Canada, you may want to hold off that thought for now.
If you are less than impressed with AT&T’s decision to offer the Samsung Galaxy Camera only with HSPA+ speed, you may want to hold off from getting the device, for an LTE-equipped Galaxy Camera has been spotted paying FCC a visit.
Some call it bizarre, some funky, whereas others think of it as a brilliant gadget that breaks down the boundaries between smart devices and point-and-shoot cameras. If you’re part of the latter category and love the Samsung Galaxy Camera, but hesitated to get it from AT&T for $500, you should check out discount website DailySteals
In this post, we review the newest Android-powered camera from Samsung, the Galaxy Camera EK-GC100. The Galaxy Camera is just like any ordinary point-and-shoot but, at the same time, is also a smart device that lets you browse the Net, play games, and instantly upload your images and videos to the Web. See our in-depth review.
Longing for a taste of smart cameras, eh? If you live up north of the 49th parallel (actually a few degrees south for the majority), then the Samsung Galaxy Camera is coming your way. Samsung has announced the launch of their smart camera in Canada in time for the holiday season.
If you’ve got a Samsung Galaxy Camera, but find yourself squirming knowing that there are certain things that you just can’t do, you may be in luck, as some intrepid folks over at XDA Developers have rooted the device, and it seems fairly easy to do.
Seeing that the Samsung Galaxy Camera was announced for AT&T in early October, this means you’ve had more than a month to consider whether or not the Jelly Bean-powered camera is worth the investment. If you still have some doubts, you can now go the nearest AT&T stores to test the device in the real world.
The Samsung Galaxy Camera is finally coming to the United States this Friday, November 16th. The camera will be sold for $500 and will not require a data plan or contract, which is great news for those that really are only interested in using the camera over Wi-Fi.
