Samsung confirms Galaxy Camera headed to Verizon Wireless with 4G LTE

It was last month AT&T began offering the Samsung Galaxy Camera and while, most reviews largely great things to say about the camera, it seems the $500 price tag that scared away many consumers. Just because it wasn’t a first of it’s kind (the Nikon Coolpix S800c beat Samsung to punch by almost a full month), we will say that it was first camera ever to launch with a quad-core processor and running on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Samsung didn’t pull any punches with this camera and the price tag shows.

Well, if you were genuinely interested in the Galaxy Camera, but hated the thought of putting up with AT&T’s service, perhaps Verizon Wireless will better suit you? The Verizon 4G LTE version of the camera was in inadvertently thrown up on Samsung’s official product page (then promptly removed), ahead of an official announcement from Verizon.

While I’m sure connecting to Verizon’s superior 4G network wont sway everyone, I think there’s gotta be someone out there at least entertaining the idea. Anyone considering picking up one of these for the holidays?

    Depends on how much the monthly service is…

    Verizon already gets enough of my money….No Thank You…….

    This thing doesn’t function as a phone, does it? So you’re basically just paying for data only? Seems a WiFi tether would work just as well and keep costs down by leaving the 4G radios out of it and also make it not tied to a carrier, which I’m sure will affect updates.

  • Food for thought

    How much is the monthly fee? Most I would pay is $5. Anything more is completely ludicrous.

    This would be a great item if they added the phone… they already have all the technology in it!

    I’d definitely be interested in this if it were an actual smartphone! Imagine that, a smartphone with a camera that has a 21x zoom!!!!!

    No need to wait. Go to AT&T Store and buy one today. $499 no contract. They didn’t even ask my name. Just use the free wifi hotspot on your Verizon phone to connect. This camera is amazing, btw.
