RE: Waiting for an Android Canon...

Canon and Nikon make the best small format cameras in the world. Using Android directly on the camera, I would hope, would allow for better remote control of the device, as well as the ability to use apps directly with it.
For the sake of argument, let's say I would like to mount a smallish camera (and no, this isn't directly related to my initial comment, as a real camera would probably be too heavy for most of those) on one of those remote controlled helicopters. I would be able to take control that device with an Android device. Or, I would be able to use images with a networked wireless keyboard to write articles with whatever purpose in mind.
I'm sure it wouldn't be the easiest thing in the world to make both Canon's OS and Google's OS work together... but... Perhaps Canon could redesign their CPU to have an independent core (or two) to operate the photographic and videographic operations while another (or two) could operate the Android OS.
I will have to check that Samsung camera out when I have an extra $500 burning a hole in my pocket.
