Lightbulb Samsung Galaxy Camera

I just recently watched the keynote for the Samsung Unpacked Event. What really interested me the most was the Samsung Galaxy Camera. It is essentially a mega zoom point and shoot camera running JB 4.1. So I was wondering if this can double as a pmp/point and shoot. It doesn't look like it has a phone app.

But downloading groove ip can easily solve this problem. Im guessing that they are going to release a wifi only version and a wifi+3g+4g version. So people with a smartphone can just tether wifi via foxfi or pdanet if they buy the wifi only version.

It has access to the Google Play Store so you can download any app.

Here are some of the specs
- 21x optical super long zoom
- 4.8" HD Super Clear LCD
- 16mp BSI CMOS Sensor
- Optical Image Stabilization
- Runs Android 4.1 JB
- wifi/3g/4g

So what do you guys think? Can this double as a pmp? Im guessing the wifi version will be priced at around $250-$300. Would you guys carry this around along with your smartphone?

Heres a link to the keynote

The Samsung Galaxy Camera portion starts at 50:46

It looks like the link now leads to Samsung Unpacked 2012 Day 2 of IFA

Heres a youtube video introducing the Samsung Galaxy Camera (It is not the full intro unfortunately) If anyone else can find a link to the full keynote feel free to post it.
