Here's something different. Polaroid has released the iM1836 advanced ILC (Interchangeable Lens Camera) running on Android. That means Instagram and a host of other photo apps plus WiFi availability off the bat. It does resemble Nikon's 1 ILC in shape and design. Hit jump to find out more.
The new 18 megapixel Polaroid iM1836 was announced at the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show, the first and only Android-powered compact interchangeable-lens smart camera. Featuring the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, the iM1836 comes with a 10-30mm optical zoom lens and provides consumers the option of using all Micro Four Thirds system lenses with the camera, using the accompanying adaptor.
The Polaroid iM1836 is the first camera of its kind to pair interchangeable lens options like those previously found only on D-SLR cameras with the intuitive Android™ operating system. Lightweight and portable, it's a great option for capturing professional quality images and 1080p HD video on the go. Its built-in peer-to-peer Wi-Fi and easy-to-use Polaroid photo sharing apps allow users to immediately upload and share their images via social media. Built-in Bluetooth connectivity pairs the camera with any Bluetooth-enabled device to upload images and video when Wi-Fi isn't available.
