Samsung to Ship New Built-in GPS Camera

Samsung today unveiled five new point-and-shoots cameras; among them is the WB650 model that features an embedded GPS to geo-tag pictures. Other particularities are a 15x optical zoom lens that starts at an ultrawide 24mm, a 3-inch AMOLED display and HD-quality video recording. Pricing has not been disclosed yet.

This is the second GPS camera for Samsung after the CL65/ST1000 launched last year (read story here). At the CES trade show ten days ago Sony also introduced a GPS and compass-enabled camera (read here) and Casio was displaying a prototype with GPS and indoor dead reckoning (read here).
