Today at CES 2013, Polaroid introduced the world's first Android-powered compact interchangeable lens "smart camera." It features an 18 megapixel CMOS image sensor capable of recording Full HD 1080p video, Auto blink detection, Auto face exposure, a pop-up flash, and the ability to easily capture panorama photographs.

But the real star is the the Android 4.1 "Jelly Been" operating system, which users will access via the large 3.5-inch touchscreen LCD display. Sharing and backing up photos is a breeze thanks to built-in peer-to-peer WiFi capability and, should Wi-Fi be unavailable, built-in Bluetooth connectivity is also available.

Given its compact design and the ability to add any Micro Four Thirds compatible lens, the iM1836 is the perfect digicam for someone who takes a lot of photos with his or her smartphone because of the convenience, but wishes the quality and performance to reach near-dSLR levels.
