Doesn't say if the battery is removable.

HAAS599 says:

it is

montgoss says:

It is, but it's still a proprietary flat battery.

When I first saw it, I was really hoping that big bulge on the right-hand side was where the AA batteries went. So much nicer to be able to go into any convenience store worldwide and come out with fresh batteries for your camera...

jeffrok says:

Good luck running Android on AA's.. lol. No.

montgoss says:

Why not? The Energizer rechargeable AA's say right on the side that they're 2500 mAh. That seems like plenty to me...

Madness87 says:

No modern high end digital camera still runs off of AA batteries still... Companies such as Canon, Sony, Samsung have very little "space" to begin with. Think about it, these cameras not only have HDMI ports, USB ports, and SD card slots, but they have backlit CMOS sensors and monster 20x+ optical zooms.

It's much more feasible to put in a propreitary memory card that provides decent shooting ability, while still allowing for a tiny real estate on the camera itself.

I know what you mean about how you'd rather have AA batteries. They can be cheap and convenient in a pinch. But I think my last compact digital camera that took AA or NIMH-rechargeable AA's was from 2005.

And despite claims by Duracell or Energizer, they really hype up what they can offer.

Any thoughts on Price?

HAAS599 says:

Specs look good but can it play Shadowgun?

It does play all Android Games.

aaronwe says:

Let me get this straight... it's got a microphone, a speaker, a 4G/3G chipset... AND IT CAN'T MAKE A F***ING PHONE CALL!?

Samsung: I want to buy one of these. I don't want to have to carry one of these in addition to a phone. Help me help you.

montgoss says:

It can technically, just not out of the box. If it has a data connection, you can do VOIP. That's assuming they haven't intentionally broken that capability...

It also has bluetooth, so you could use that for calls even if the mic and speaker are shit. Or you just don't want to use it as a speakerphone always. Bluetooth headsets are pretty small. Still not sure I'd want to carry both all the time though.

Wicell says:

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe I saw a touchwiz sms app on it during the hands-on video

paga912 says:

I saw that too...im confused. lol

rogeratm says:

This looks like a really nice device! I'm sure it will handle most of the Apps but I would only want to to connect via WiFi, not any phone network. I'd think any phone plan for this would be outrageous.
The specs look great! Nice zoom, good video, great sensor. The files could be huge but we can change that easily enough to suit our needs.
Depending on the final price, I'm IN! I use my Galaxy Epic 4G as a camera frequently (when I don't happen to have a camera with me) and would love using something like this as my preference for Point and Shoot projects.
I do have frequent problems with my Galaxy as a camera, though. So, I'd be cautious until seeing how Jelly Bean works with the camera apps.

PWC Realtor says:

Unless it can time/date stamp photos I'll keep using my Panasonic LUMIX.

StarrWulfe says:

ummm.... any cameraphone can put that information into EXIF along with GPS coordinates too. Do you mean actually imprint the picture with the time and date? I'm sure since it's an actual point and shoot camera, it'll be able to do that as well. (my phone can do this too though.)

Great innovation by samsung, really looking forward to have one.
