Nikon Coolpix S810c, a compact camera with Android, the rival of the Galaxy Camera

Nearly two years after Nikon released its first compact camera with Android, they’re at it again. The company has presented the Coolpix S810c, a new compact camera with Android 4.2.2, designed to compete against the Samsung Galaxy Camera.

The new Coolpix S810c features many improvements over its predecessor, the S800c. It has a 16-megapixel sensor, 12x zoom (equivalent to 25-300mm) and a 3.7-inch LCD touch screen. It also has headphone jack and GPS.

The camera features a relatively new version of Android, 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, compared to the version 2.3 of the previous model.

The price is not too bad: $350 in the US, compared to the 450 the Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 costs. But Nikon faces some disadvantages: The Coolpix S810c has no data connection, while the Galaxy Camera does. It is always connected if needed. In addition, Samsung’s experience with Android is a force to be reckoned with. Still, what matters is that there’s finally a serious alternative to the Galaxy Camera, not to mention for cheap.
