Check out the Polaroid SC1630, the world’s first Android-powered camera

We got a chance to take a look at Polaroid’s Android-powered camera, the SC1630. It’s actually the world’s first HD camera that runs on Google’s Android OS. The camera features a 3.2-inch display, Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread, a 16-megapixel camera that is capable of recording video at 720P, GPS, and more.

Connectivity wise, the Polaroid SC1630 will allow you to connect to the net via Wi-Fi or fast 4G LTE networks. At the moment, we don’t know which carrier is going to be offering data plans for the camera.

The Polaroid rep said that they were working on getting LTE certification and customers will be able to get month-to-month data plans, so no long-term commitment will be required.

It’s nice to see Polaroid step up their game a little bit. It’s also good that they included mobile network connectivity for those people who want to instantly share their pictures via the many social networking sites.

The Polaroid SC1630 Android camera will be available in April and will sell for $299.
