Re: Looking forward to the impact the android-camera from Samsung may have...

Is the Samsung forum really quiet or something?

Anyway, somewhat similar in topic. I use a variety of instruments. The very best of these was an earlier model, which had a custom built OS and apps designed to run on the hardware.

The very worst of these instruments is the one that followed, where they switched to Windows Mobile and rebuilt the apps to run on that OS. The hardware was much faster than the earlier instrument, but most potential performance gains were lost due to buggy software.

Conceptually there is a lot of potential in using an accessible operating system to drive a camera, however I'm not convinced that we'll see that potential achieved anytime soon.
