Polaroid to finally release Socialmatic camera this Fall

Polaroid Socialmatic

We’re sure you’ve forgotten about this device over the last year. Here’s a refresher: the Polaroid Socialmatic is a camera running Android that’s meant to take, share and print photos instantly. It’s a re-imagining of the old instant cameras, with printing done in ink-free paper like it should be. However, this behemoth finally has a general release date!

This device will feature two cameras (one 14 megapixel and one 2 megapixel), a 4.5-inch touchscreen display, 4GB of storage with a microSD slot for expansion, built in WiFi, and of course, our favorite open source OS will be running it all.

I’m not sure how to feel about this device, but I can imagine it won’t gain too much traction out there. However, if you’d like to buy it, Polaroid says the device will be releasing this fall, so the wait won’t be too much longer. Are you excited for such a device, or do you think it’ll be just another flop? Leave a comment!

    It will be a flop.the mps aren’t high, the printing I’m sure will be crap. Why spend money on what I am sure will be at least a $200 device when you can buy a decent real camera that will be better for around the same price range. I have a note 2. My pictures are great already

      I agree, it’s going to be so cool, when I get it, I’ll be obsessed

  • smeghead68

    if you’re going to carry around another device why would it be this one? I can see this being a niche market device.

    Depends on pricing.

    I am in love with this camera, I don’t know why, but I’ve always loved cameras.I think that now photography will be easier to share now. I also love that you can send the photos right to a social app, it’s amazing.When I get it I will take so many pictures people will get tired of it.I’m sure it will go big!
