The Polaroid Socialmatic camera was announced way back in July last year but never got an official launch due to a few reasons. But Polaroid has now unveiled this Android based camera + printer at the ongoing CES event in Las Vegas. Just like a standard Polaroid camera, this is capable of capturing pictures and printing them immediately, which will require the 2 x 3 inch Zero Ink or ZINK photo paper inside. If not, you can just as easily share these images through online services like Instagram, Facebook or Twitter thanks to the vast collection of apps available on Android.
The Socialmatic houses a 4.5 inch display, a 14MP camera which is the highlight of the device, a 2MP camera for self portraits and 4GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot. It also packs Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for easy sharing. The camera itself looks a whole lot like the Instagram logo, which is not a coincidence. The photos printed from the camera will be water resistant and smudge proof. The Socialmatic will launch in fall 2014 according to the company for the same $299 pricing as previously mentioned. This could give the Galaxy Camera 2 a run for its money, especially considering the price and functionality.
