Samsung VLUU i70 Camera

Samsung today released the VLUU i70, one of the first cameras to support a broadband Internet connection regardless of its location. An HSDPA transmitter is built into the chassis for uploading photos directly to a remote computer or website, skipping the process of connecting to a local PC or relying only on a lower-quality cellphone camera. The required hardware does not tread on the i70's usefulness as a full camera, Samsung claims. A 3X optical zoom lens is paired with a 7.2 megapixel sensor that can reach ISO 1600 sensitivity and resists blurring with anti-shake correction.

Media playback is just as important to the Korean-made camera. MP3 songs are playable directly from removable storage; the i70 will play not only its own self-recorded MPEG-4 videos on its 3-inch LCD but also those transferred from a PC. It can also receive SMS text messages, the company says. A launch is planned soon for an unknown price. A gallery follows after the jump.
