Most people my age and older have heard of Polaroid instant cameras, although they went out of style once digital photography became mainstream. Recently, Socialmatic LLC announced that they have an agreement with Polaroid to market a new-age instant camera, the Polaroid Socialmatic camera. This camera brings the old style of printing out photos directly from the camera into the digital age by allowing you to take a digital photograph, manipulate it with a variety of photo filters, and print it out (or share it on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter) via its touch screen. The Socialmatic camera will utilize the Android operating system. It comes with 16 GB of internal memory with an expandable SD card slot, and will also have WiFi and 3G connectivity. There is no price announced yet, but the Polaroid Socialmatic is estimated to be released in early 2014.
