The possibilities are endless for the Moto Z series thanks to its modular Moto Mod platform. Now Motorola has introduced its latest Mod which adds a Polaroid Insta-Share Printer onto your smartphone. Instead of having to carry a separate Bluetooth printer, you can snap and print photos in one seamless device.
Kodak isn’t the only camera brand that’s entering the smart phone business. Polaroid also has announced its first smart phone at CES 2015 that’s called the Selfie. Unfortunately it has gotten some unwanted attention from OPPO and looking at the photo above, you probably know why.
With a rotating 13MP at the top, the Polaroid Selfie looks like a copy of OPPO’s iconic N1 smart phone and the similarity doesn’t just stop there. The appearance of the Polaroid Selfie is virtually the same except for some subtle design treatment on the back. It gets a 5.5″ display, albeit a lower HD 720p resolution, an Octa-Core processor (presumably MediaTek), 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage that’s non-expandable. One area which the Polaroid Selfie excels over the OPPO N1 is the software, as it runs on the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop.
Polaroid has launched the iM1836, the World’s first Android-powered interchangeable-lens camera, at CES 2013.
The genre-making iM1836 has an 18MP sensor housed within the lens itself. It will run on Android version 4.1 (Jelly Bean), in three modes: shoot, edit, and apps. Unlike the 16.3MP Samsung Galaxy Camera that has 3G, the iM1836 (how’s that for a mouthful) has only WiFi and Bluetooth for connectivity.
On the downside, the iM1836’s rather odd camera sensor location, inside its lens, has raised the question of whether or not users will need to buy new sensors for new lens. Furthermore the lens-mountings are a proprietary design by Polaroid, although adapters to the Micro Four Thirds system will be available.
