Polaroid’s new camera/smartphone hybrid, the SC1630 is one of the strangest devices showcased at the International Consumer Electronics Show. At 18.5mm, the device is a bit thicker than most Android smartphones that are launched on the market these days.
For those who are looking for a camera, the main attraction will probably be the 16-megapixel camera with 3x optical zoom, F3.1-F5.6 aperture, HD (720p) video recording, and up to 3200 ISO.
On the other hand, Android fans will probably be thrilled by the fact that such a good camera comes with Google’s platform and can be used to make phone calls as well.
The device features quad-band GSM support and tri-band 3G connectivity. It only works with microSIM cards and features a decent 3.2-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen.
It is also worth mentioning that the device comes with a rather low-capacity 1020 mAh Li-Ion camera, which might not be enough for an average user. Polaroid SC1630 will be available on the market sometime in April for a suggested retail price of $300. More details on Polaroid's device are available at Engadget.
