Following in the footsteps of Nikon and Samsung, Polaroid will introduce its own take on an Android-based digital camera at CES 2013. The confirmation, provided to Imaging Resource by CEO Scott Hardy comes just days after purported images of the interchangeable-lens shooter surfaced. Other than verifying its existence, Hardy offered no further information on the product. According to the photos and specs that reportedly appeared in a trade publication, Polaroid's incoming point-and-shoot will feature an 18.1-megapixel sensor, 3.5-inch touchscreen, integrated Wi-Fi, and will run Android 4.0. As for whether or not its glaring similarity to Nikon's 1 J2 means it will offer support the same lenses, we'll have to wait until January to find out.
