Earlier reports had hinted that an Android-powered camera was being developed by Nikon. According to Nikonrumours, this Android-powered camera is the Nikon Coolpix S800.

The Nikon Coolpix S800 will supposedly come with a 25 to 250mm lens, 3.5-inch OLED display, integrated GPS, and Wi-Fi connectivity. The reported Android-powered camera will use the Gingerbread Android 2.3, which is way behind the current version of the mobile OS, the Jelly Bean Android 4.1.

Access to the Google Play store may add to the appeal of the Nikon Coolpix S800, which may allow users to download apps into the device. This may give users something to do while waiting for the perfect ‘Nikon’ moment that they can capture with the supposed Android-powered camera from Nikon.

It remains uncertain whether the report on the Nikon Coolpix S800 is authentic or not since the site has not revealed its sources. However it did indicate that the reported Nikon Coolpix S800 may be unveiled by August 22, which gives potential buyers some time to save up for the device.

A number of reports had also hinted at the possibility that Samsung will be releasing its own Android-powered camera although nothing much was heard about these reports. Although some industry watchers are looking forward to the release of the reported Nikon S800, the performance of the product itself remains up in the air following the hands-on experience on the Polaroid SC1630, which also featured an Android OS.

Whether the Nikon Coolpix S800 will perform well in the market or not remains to be seen although it will be an interesting addition to the Android-powered devices that are already in the market.
