" but we can't help but think that some people wouldn't want an open source operating system that can access all your holiday pictures, your real time location (and geo-tagging), and a high-speed mobile Internet connection"

I'm sorry. What?

cool to have those features, but I think a stripped down version of the OS would be lighter on the processor and battery..

Very restrictive grip at the side. You've got to be extra careful when taking shots to avoid accidentally clicking on anything on the screen.'

It seems that the common theme among all samsung products now is to shove screens of increasing largeness on them.

Finally a step in the right direction, now all they need to do is add the phone functions back in, and you will actually have a smartphone with a decent camera.

Make it $600 and it will sell really well by competing with the nikon D3200 while only costing slightly more.

Other than that, it could use some physical buttons and dials.

A DSLR must allow you to adjust shutter speed, aperture, and ISO without having to move the viewfinder from your face, so having a few modifier buttons and an adjustment dial is a must for non studio photography of people.

There is a reason DSLRs have manual controls.

Why would a camera contain touch screen interface? Sizable screen and viewfinder? And why would it run android as platform?
Android is known for its familiarity and ease of use. A camera would be good entry product to interest people who already have phone and tablet. Though not as useful compared to true DSLR, it should offer at leas better picture quality and internet connection for image upload.

No indeed. We want proprietary operating systems. That we have no idea what they do. Or how secure they are. With access to pictures, location, internet. Because we trust big corporations. I mean they do have 50 pages long license agreements. There must be something there about our data privacy and protection... right?
