The Nikon Coolpix S800c on one hand is a 16 megapixel compact digital camera and on the other hand is a Android-powered touchscreen device. On the camera end we have a 10x, 25-250mm (35mm equivalent) zoom lens and 1080p video support. The “smart device” part of the camera runs on Android 2.3 gingerbread with a large touchscreen on the back.

It has built-in wifi and GPS and like any other Android smart phone or tablet you can install apps, surf the web, check your email and most importantly upload the pictures from this camera directly to your social networks without having to download the photos to a PC. The benefit being a high quality Nikon Coolpix camera compared to the mediocre camera you would find in your phone or tablet. If a wifi connection is not available you can also wirelessly transfer the photos to other nearby Android devices.

The S800c will be available in September 2012 at a MSRP of $349.99 US. Get it on Amazon or Adorama.
