Why Android Could Be Headed for the Laundry Room

Why Android Could Be Headed for the Laundry Room – Bits Blog – NYTimes.com.

Why does nobody mention digital cameras for Android? It’s a lot more plausible than having Android on a washing machine.

The closest the article comes to photography is digital picture frames. It’s like there is an agreement not to go there publicly. That may be good news in that things are happening.

I am sure the camera makers are saying that cameras are so full of proprietary technology that they’ll never open them up without losing their competitive advantage. But that’s what tech companies have said for years in so many areas.

I think it’s going to happen, probably with a second tier camera maker who balks at the cost of developing software for a new camera and wants to make a splash. If I was a betting type I’d open a book on what company and when it will be announced.
