16 MP Polaroid Android HD smartphone does optical zoom - read the full textHey, look - it's Big Foot! No, it's just the Altek Leo, a creature that appears occasionally, the local newspaper writes about it and then disappears for another year. This time there's a big name attached to it at least, so maybe this time it will get a proper market release. Meet the Polaroid...

Oh man that thing is UGLY. These days people (especially non-techy people) are buying phones based on looks/aesthetics/sex appeal. No one will buy this if its that butt-ugly, no matter how good the specs. And because of such poor battery, those that were thinking of buying it wont.

seems like the kind of phone you would regret buying I would never get one, however n8 is also a terrible phone even though it has a decent camera, Galaxy S2 is a good phone with a pretty good camera that's why I own one.

Except for the touch screen (which isn't great either) it looks like a candybar phone from 1998..

I agree with the other poster who said Kodak should cut their losses and bow out of the market, perhaps licencing their patented technology instead of manufacturing.

The front aint the best lookin but if it acts like a propa digital camera then im in, remember if it aint a propa xenon flash just like the n8 or the viewty then it will also be a poor camera for night. Its all about the lightin when it comes to any camera.

It would have been cool if the phone side was a bit more modern, like some led buttons and a better looking screen and the back in old school camera. A bit of old and new(er). The main downsides are the battery, 720p, thick body to small screen. I wouldn't buy it. Don't need to explain why.

If this has better image quality than a Galaxy S2, I'm in. As long as I can leave the point'n'shoot at home, I don't care about slow graphics, no 1080p, slow response, whatever. If it can make phone calls and have excelent image quality, that's it.

well i surely would love to buy this phone when it has two of my most favorite brands. Polaroid (Older favorite) Kodak (Pretty decent). And also When i already own a phone which is around 16mm thick 18mm would still be fine. want to know when i can procure this beast.

last ditch effort to stay afloat.... maybe best for Kodak to sell its patents and fade away with what little dignity they have left... in imho.

  • ib9{ If the P1 can house a 1800 mAh battery then this handset would need something approaching 2000 mAh, especially if they're going to be selling it on the merit of it's optical zoom camera feature...
