Gone are the days of snapping a picture and having it shoot out of the camera already printed and ready for sharing. Digital cameras are great for snapping pictures, but you’ll have to wait until you have access to a computer to email them if you want to share them. The new SC1630 Smart Camera Powered by Android from Polaroid gives you a digital camera with instant photo-sharing capabilities. The SC1630 has a 16MP CCD sensor and 3X optical zoom, up to 32GB of storage with a microSD card, and a 3.2″ widescreen LCD touchscreen display. There are 18 pre-defined scene modes to help you capture the perfect picture. The camera has automatic face and smile detection, geo-tagging, color-correction, and cropping. Smart features arrange the photos into albums by date, location, and people. Because the camera is Android-powered, you’ll be able to instantly share your photos whenever you have a WiFi connection. You can also connect to the Android Market with the Polaroid SC1630, so you’ll be able to choose from the 400,000 apps there to expand the function of your camera. Polaroid hasn’t yet announced the price or availability of the SC1630.
