If you really want Samsung's Galaxy Camera (our review), but aren't into the idea of being tied down to a carrier so you can take pictures, it's your lucky day. The company just announced the Galaxy Camera Wi-Fi, which quite frankly makes a whole lot more sense, anyway.

Unfortunately, there's no word on pricing or availability, despite the fact that the PR states that the device is being "launched today."

    I hope it's £20.

    Much more appealing to have a wifi only version, should be a lot better pricing without the cellular radio.

    Looking forward to an interchangeable lens system Camera with Android. Would love to see a Nexus.

    Excuse my ignorance, but is it really necessary a quad-core processor for a cámera? My guess is it's for hd video, but cheaper processors can probably handle that.

      I don't see a reason on limiting the processor since it runs apps and shoots in HD. The last thing I'd want to see on a "smart" camera is latency.

      That is probably the same 1.4 GHz quad core they use in the S3 so they will be getting huge economies of scale using it instead of some duel core. If there is a saving it probably isnt much and that is a big IF too.

    The future for point and shoots is phones with 1" or larger sensors, high pixel-binning ratio and OIS. Not these $400 cameras with Android that aren't even that good. Make more phones like the Pureview 808!

    Dang! I literally just bought the AT&T version of this camera yesterday!
