Xalies, 31 Aug 2012No GSM sucks.... but theres always VoIP through 3GBut that would look plain stupid if people would see you talking through a camera. :D
g, 30 Aug 2012people will think your insane if you use this in calling. imagine a digicam in your ear.100% right!
I m worried abt pricing ! even sony offers a similr camera
But i guess Android Power is much better than Sony, i want to know the comparative stats to another camera than a phone. I need quality !
great innovation samsung. carefull the top one will not be higher continuously. keep making good gadget
how samsung make this divice without gsm support???
4.8 inches, 16 MP, 21x optical zoom, Android OS, v4.1, Quad-core 1.4 GHz??? if only this galaxy camera has gsm would be PERFECT!! better than S3 or note2....
AnonD-38033, 30 Aug 2012better to buy dslr..or pureView PureView's everything okay expect ugly 640x360 pixel on 4" display meaning 184ppi density yuck nokia why no hd display :-|
No GSM support simply means... It supports CDMA. So we can surely use it as phone for making calls, sms, etc...
battery just 1650 mAh? I think it could well be a problem compared to the batteries of the other companies' point and shoot cameras specially considering that the OS is android which is famous for consuming more battery (Dont know if its actually the truth.)
I think Samsung should have voice communication on this Camera then it will be one of its kind, just like Galaxy Note when it first came out. This is just a point to shot camera then there are so many chooses out in the market and this one would not be my first choice.
Incase you guys missed the 100 comments stating its not a phone, here it is again ITS NOT A PHONE its a new type of camera! so its not trying to compete with the PureView its just a new product that samsung are bringing to the world. Just like how sumsung gave us the galaxy note no one thought it would be practical but it is one of the best selling samsung devices.
SAMSUNG GALAXY CAMERA IS NOT A PHONE!!!!!!!!!!!
it's not a phone and not just camera it have quad core so you can do what you want this device made for those how don't like the smart phones and use a normal phones so you can check whatever you want from this device and i'm gonna buy it for sure
Ra1, 30 Aug 2012yes why the sim slot ablable here...You know, there's this thing they call 'internet'. I heard it can be provided through 3G/4G signal. Maybe and just maybe that's why the SIM card is there.
