I want to start this story by thinking and asking myself a question. Is a mediocre camera really necessary with a mediocre phone? Yes, it may seem harsh, but my answer has to be no.
Given that 16 megapixels is a more than decent resolution, 3x optical zoom is a lag for a compact camera and 800 MHz phone these days, and 512MB of RAM is very optimistic and on the low end. If we add to all of this that this camera / phone hits the market for the modest $ 300, it will have zero to zero commercial success in my opinion.
And it all comes from the news that Polaroid is going to launch the Polaroid SC1630, which is what we described above, that is, something that doesn’t know if it’s a phone or a compact camera and that it’s shipwrecked on both aspects (All of this without testing and based on the specifications from Polaroid itself).
Polaroid has said it will be available in April, and as we said for $ 300, that’s not an inflated price, but honestly and without wanting to act as a fortune-teller, it won’t even compare the Tato, well, maybe any Collectors or Polaroid fanatics. I hope I’m wrong as I’ve always especially loved the brand, but I don’t think this movement will help Polaroid get out of the well it has been in for several years.
