Polaroid will debut an Android-powered camera with interchangeable lenses at CES, according to the company’s CEO, Scott Hardy.

The company has been pretty quiet in recent years but, along with various collaborations with artists such as Lady Gaga, is slowly getting into the digital camera game. Gleaned from a statement to Imaging Resource, the company will show off a premium digital camera at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show, complete with interchangeable lenses. Though no details have been confirmed yet, according to a spec sheet leaked to a Russian blog, the mirrorless point-and-shoot with sport a 18 megapixel camera and a 10-30mm kit lens. The back will sport a 3.5-inch touch screen of unknown resolution and include WiFi and GPS. It will also ostensibly run Android 4.0.

We’ll know more in the coming weeks, but until then you can always buy the Samsung Galaxy Camera and Nikon S800c.

    Unfortunately Polaroid has a history of introducing products at CES and then never bringing them to market, at least not in Canada. The debuted an Android-based camera a year ago at the show which never saw the light of day.
    Part of the problem is that Polaroid isn’t actually a company. It’s an organization that licenses the Polaroid brand to other companies so that they can create products under the name. It means there is no consistent quality or strategy behind these Polaroid products and no one who is on the hook to ensure that these concepts actually ship.

    Why bother….get a canon point & shoot. Superb hardware, and fluid software, along with a wifi card if deemed necessary. Way, way better the money that will probably go for the hype of this offering.
