Nikon on Monday announced a new Android-powered compact camera with built-in Wi-Fi, the Nikon Coolpix S800c. While connected cameras with built-in Wi-Fi are nothing new, what is different is the S800c’s operating system, which uses Android 2.3 to run the camera. Android 2.3 is also known as the “Gingerbread” version of Google’s mobile operating system. The newest version is called Jellybean. The S800c will offer full access to the Google Play store, allowing users to download anything from the store, including photography, games, and social media apps or simply video for entertainment on the go.
