AT&T Puts Hefty $499 Price Tag on Samsung’s Android-Based Galaxy Camera

Those who want the benefit of pairing Android, a 4G connection and a true point-and-shoot camera will have to pay up for the privilege.

AT&T said Monday that it will sell the Samsung Galaxy Camera for $499. Those who want to save a bit can buy the camera at the same time as another Samsung wireless device and save $100. The carrier had said back in October that it would have the device, but did not announce pricing.

The Galaxy Camera, which will be available starting Nov. 16, packs a 4.8-inch screen, 16-megapixel camera and 21x optical zoom, all powered by a 1.4GHz processor. It can be paired with a variety of AT&T’s mobile share data plans.

AT&T also announced pricing for the HTC One X+ and HTC One VX. The One X+, an update to HTC’s flagship device, will sell for $199, while the lower-end VX will sell for $49, and both will be available on Nov. 16.

The pricing comes a day ahead of an event in New York where HTC and Verizon are set to show off their latest phone collaboration.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
