    It looks like Samsung didn't stop with just he launch of their new Galaxy Note 2. They also announced a strange and cool new device. It's an Android based camera with some crazy good specs, built on the Galaxy phone design, and running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean! Here's the scoop:
    • 23mm f/2.8 lens with 21x optical zoom
    • 4.7" HD Super Clear Touch Display at 308ppi
    • ISO from 100 up to 3200
    • 3G and 4G connectivity
    • 1.4GHz Quad-core processor
    • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
    • 8GB onboard storage
    • microSD
    • HDMI
    • A-GPS
    • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity
    • 1650mAh battery
    It also has a slew of advanced software features. Here's a few:
    • Access to Google Play Store and all of its plethora of camera apps
    • Features ten different shooting modes - this includes a "Smart Pro Mode" with aperture, shutter speed, and even more adjustments for experienced photographers
    • Can use voice control for functions like zooming, group-shots, toggling and more.
    • Has a "Best Group Shot" feature which can merge images with different faces for each subject
    • Photo Wizard - includes minor editing functionality and a filter application
    • Movie Wizard - does the same for videos
    • Share Shot, allowing sharing with other Galaxy Cameras or phones
    This is a facepalm kind of good idea. It makes you wonder why we haven't seen more of these in the past!

    So right on the facepalm. It makes a lot of good common sense to have/use a camera with those capabilities.
