Swirling in the rumor mills for weeks, Polaroid finally confirmed on the show floor of Las Vegas' CES trade show, the Polaroid iM1836 Android Camera will be company's newest attempt to reassert itself into the hyper-competitive consumer electronic marketplace. Manufactured by Sakar International, a licensee of the Polaroid brand, the iM1836 will be the world's first Android-powered mirror-less camera with an interchangeable lens system. Quipped with a 18.1 megapixel image sensor, a 3.5-inch touchscreen LCD display, and Android 4.1 (JellyBean) OS, there is also WiFi connectivity for peer-to-peer sharing as well as 1080p HD video capability. Around the same size as the Nikon 1 J1, the camera comes with a 10-30mm lens though there is also an adapter available for Micro Four-Third lens from other makers. Set to be available later this year with a suggested retail price of US$ 399. But of course, with stiff competition it will be facing, the price is likely to be less.
