Holy heck is this pricing ambitious. Samsung's Android-equipped mirrorless camera, the Galaxy NX, is slated to hit US retailers this October for the princely sum of $1,700 with a bundled 18-55mm lens ($1,600 body only). That may be an awful lot of dough, but it is a bit less than the £1,299 (about $2,000) quoted at UK retailers last month, and considering the hardware on board, we wouldn't be surprised if thousands of curious consumers still pick one up. That amount nets you a 20.3-megapixel APS-C sensor, NX300-like focusing, 8.6fps continuous shooting, and a 1.6GHz quad-core processor for far better Android performance that you'd get with, say, the Galaxy S4 Zoom. There's also WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and GLONASS, along with cellular radios, letting you transfer images over LTE.

See, I was gonna get this, but that price is just prohibitive.
