Millions use their smartphone as their primary camera because it is always with them and sharing those photos is easy from your phone. Kodak announced they will be launching an Android-powered smartphone at CES in a couple weeks with a tablet and connected camera coming later in 2015.The Kodak brand has been synonymous with cameras so it is encouraging to see them placing their brand on a new smartphone.
Apple's iPhone is one of the most popular camera phones, primarily due to its simplicity and solid quality. The press release states that Kodak will not compromise on design and user experience while improving the printing and sharing experience.
The release also states that Kodak will include advanced remote management software to allow family members and friends to provide help and support. This sounds like Amazon's Mayday service for the Fire Phone. With statements like this, it sounds like the new Kodak Android smartphone will be targeted to the masses and not the smartphone enthusiast.
Stay tuned for further CBS Interactive coverage of CES in a couple of weeks.
