Camera will allow you to use social media, apps and play games. You can even take photos with it too.

Accessing the internet from your TV or MP3 player may have seemed ludicrous a few years ago, but connected devices are becoming more ubiquitous as time goes on.

Indeed, Sony revealed an attack on the iPod Touch market just last month, arriving in the form of the Android-powered F800 (next-gen Walkman).

However, photography giant Nikon has gone one better in the connected device stakes, confirming rumours that its COOLPIX S800c camera will come charged with Google OS power.

The £379.99 device will come with full access to Google Play, enabling users to access apps, social media accounts, and games, achieving the downloads via wi-fi connection.

It will also sport a 3.5-inch touchscreen, a16MP camera, 1.7GB internal memory, and white and black colour options.

James Loader, product manager for consumer products, Nikon UK, said: "As soon as you’ve got your shot, you simply tap the screen to upload to Facebook, Twitter or to send via email, for example.

"With its 1080p Full HD movies, high quality stills even in low light and ability to edit and share instantly, you can really have some fun with this camera."

The Nikon COOLPIX S800c will be on sale from September 27th.
