The fact that the 16 megapixel, 21x zoom Samsung Galaxy Camera is one of only two snapshots currently to offer the triple whammy of being wireless, Android powered and Internet enabled, should make it compelling for gadget fans as much as camera enthusiasts.

Outside of its relatively high cost of ownership and average point-and-shoot picture quality, the Samsung Galaxy Camera definitely delivers the shoot-and-share experience of a smartphone with the features of a compact camera.

The Galaxy Camera proves that Android on a point-and-shoot is no gimmick. But until the price drops closer to the level of other compacts, it's not a very practical purchase.
