Amazon has price-slashed the Samsung Galaxy Camera to £389. Otherwise known as the GC100, the device was only launched a few weeks ago with a suggested retail price of £400, having been unveiled back in August at IFA 2012 in Germany.
The price cut, albeit a small one, comes alongside three other special offers that accompany the offer: a 20 per cent discount on an AmazonBasics camera tripod with case, a £20 off deal for a Manfrotto MK393S-PD 393 tripod, and a 46 per cent discount off the price of Adobe Elements 11 and Lightroom 4 photo-editing software.
The Galaxy Camera is the first "smart snapper" that offers both 3G and 4G connectivity. It is, as we mentioned when we first saw it, the equivalent of the Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE with a super-improved camera thrown in, but without voice or text capabilities, or a front facing camera.
There’s a quad-core system-on-a-chip clocked at 1.4GHz - the same Exynos 4412 found on the Galaxy S3 - a 4.8in 1,280 x 720 display, 1GB of RAM, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a microSD card slot, Wi-Fi, a 16-megapixel sensor, a 21x optical zoom, a pop-up Xenon flash plus a 23mm wide angle lens.
Other features include 50GB cloud-based storage free for two years courtesy of Dropbox, an HDMI port, voice control plus an auto upload capability.
