Did you know that there are currently more than 700,000 activations for Android devices on a daily basis? Yes, you read right…that’s DAILY. So, suffice to say, Android is growing but will it outpace Apple, I am not so sure but things are looking exciting on the technology-front. It is like watching these two giants slugging it out with each other, each hit getting bigger and bigger, with the crowd at the sidelines roaring with anticipating.
Yeah, just like watching a boxing match.
The exciting thing is that Samsung, being the first brand to partner up with Google, is really serious about making just about anything they can think of Android so much so that there was news in the grapevine that they might even be thinking up the idea of turning cameras into Android! What next? I am not sure but if there was a Samsung rice cooker, there might come a time that it will turn Android too.
Samsung is really spreading its wings as far as it possibly can to challenge Apple and give them a run for their money.
What spurred the rumors about an Android camera is this – Samsung filed for the trademark ‘Samsung Galaxy Camera’. While it does not necessarily mean that they ARE coming up with an Android camera but…hey, it is exciting just dreaming about it, don’t you think? Sometimes, companies file for trademark, work on ideas, run their tests, fuel rumors, release statements and the product doesn’t make the cut all the time but I am seriously hooked on the idea of an Android camera at this point.
But this would not be the first camera that you can talk with. Remember the release of Polaroid’s camera which does, in fact, run on Android and can double up as a phone? The failure of Polaroid’s launch was not because people were not fascinated with the idea…they just needed to repackage it and boost other supporting tools too. It was, at best, lackluster.
Just imagine this for a minute…an Android DSLR camera. A camera that lets you take QUALITY pictures and share it online with family and friends and also works as a phone too. I don’t know about you but I am keeping my fingers crossed that Samsung can pull this one through.
