Samsung Galaxy Camera

Ever think to yourself "Boy, I sure wish this Android-powered camera had access to AT&T's network?" Well, your prayers have been answered, as AT&T will carry the Samsung Galaxy Camera, and will give it access to its HSPA+ "4G" network.

The Galaxy Camera, as you'll recall from our coverage of it last month at the IFA conference in Berlin (see our hands-on), is Samsung's first entry into the Android-powered camera market. It's got a 16-megapixel sensor with backside illumination, a 21x optical zoom lens (f/2.8 and 23mm) -- all powered by Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and a 1 GHz quad-core processor.

The AT&T connectivity isn't that much of a surprise here -- the frequencies have been been in the Galaxy Camera specs since its announcement.

Price and availability for the camera were not announced. (Shocking, we know.) Neither was data pricing announced, though we'd expect it to fall within AT&T's shared data plans. We have, however, confirmed that the camera's Wifi remains intact, so there's that.
