Converged devices are the future of photography, believes Samsung Electronics. With an eye on the exponential rise in demand to share information on the go, the Korean electronics major said on Friday that its newest offer, Galaxy Camera, for the Indian market is basically positioned for that. “It’s a new and highly emerging segment in the Indian market essentially because people today want to share more and more information and that too on the go,” Asim Warsi, vice-president, Samsung Mobile, told DNA. The ease of usage is only hastening the transition, he added.
The device is an Android-powered Galaxy Camera priced at Rs29,900. Thanks to the 3G and wi-fi connectivity, users can share content online instantly. Samsung has tied up with Airtel to offer 1GB of free data per month for two months after purchase. The camera comes with 8GB of internal storage with an option to add another 32GB via microSD. It also gives users access to over 600,000 applications currently available on Google play.
