As Samsung lick their wounds over Apple’s patent victory, it strikes back with an Android camera.
The first ever Android camera of it kind, Samsung’s 16 Megapixel Galaxy Camera running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean has just been unveiled at IFA 2012.

The socially connected cam runs on WiFi, 3G and 4G, which lets users shoot, edit and share images to Facebook, Twitter et al any time and “easily outperforms any smartphone camera” says Samsung.

Well that wouldn’t be hard considering the highest quality camera seen on a smartphone  in OZ is 12MP on Sony Xperia S, but Sony unveiled a 16MP on one of its new models at IFA yesterday.
