Polaroid Announces Android-Based 'Smart Camera'

Heads up, techies! Remember Polaroid cameras? Remember how amazing it was to see your pictures mere minutes after snapping them? Remember how obsolete film cameras became more than a decade ago?

Well, the brand is back, and is fighting to remain vital to the photography world. CNN is reporting that a new Android-powered point-and-shoot hi-res camera is part of that reinvention, and we're super-excited to try it out.

The Polaroid SC1630 Smart Camera has a 3.2-inch touchscreen and the full Android app market. It's a 16-megapixel camera with a 3x optical zoom, and it includes Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. The SC1630 uploads photos to social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr with the push of a button.

The camera's release date and price tag have not yet been announced.
