Android on digital cameras?
Engadget reports that Samsung is considering the use of Android in its digital cameras. The idea of using a standard OS and interface in digital cameras, of course, isn't new. A good decade ago a company called Flashpoint tried to convince camera makers to use its standardized Digita operating system. A few tried it (Kodak, Minolta, HP) but Digita failed because the last thing camera makers wanted was to all operate the same. So to this day, every camera works differently, and once you get used to a certain system you're pretty much locked in. So one OS for all cameras is a nice idea, but it would have to provide compelling advantages over all those cobbled-together interfaces we have now. -- Posted Wednesday, March 14, 2012 by chb
