Announced over a year ago at CES 2014, the Polaroid Socialmatic Android camera has officially hit the Australian Polaroid website. The Socialmatic isn’t cheap though, so be prepared to pay $499.95 + delivery to get your hands on one. Polaroid is advising taht the Socialmatic will being arriving in February.
Whilst the concept of the Socialmatic is there, it incorporates the retro styled instant photography which Polaroid in their day once embodied, sadly the $500 price-tag is quite steep given the camera’s mediocre specs. The Socialmatic does have a fairly decent 14MP rear camera though so it has that going for it, but as an Android device, it’s fairly disappointing.
