To bluntly put it, Samsung is on a warpath. By putting out an inconceivable number of products earlier this year, especially in the competitive cellphone market, the consumer electronics giant gained the ultimate prize last month when its Galaxy S III trumped Apple iPhone 5 to become the best-selling smartphone in the world. Even with some 30 million units of Galaxy S III sold in the last five months, Samsung will not rest on its laurels yet. So on this Friday, November 16th, Samsung is opening a new phase in its battle plan with the Samsung Galaxy Camera. Previewed over the summer at IFA 2012 trade show, the Samsung Galaxy Camera is a convergence of mobile phone and a compact point-and-shoot digital camera. Featuring a 16.3 megapixel CMOS image sensor, 4.8-inch HD Super Clear LCD display, and a 21X optical zoom lens, plus a 1.4GHz quad-core processor, users can record high-resolution images and videos, edited, store, or share them among friends and family almost instantaneously thanks to AT&T's new Mobile Share plans. In addition, the Samsung Galaxy Camera comes with AT&T Locker, a photo & video sharing service. Now you can bypass your computer completely.
