Kodak’s lastly making smartphones (kind of)

Kodak's finally making smartphones (sort of)

For some time there it appeared like Kodak’s second had come and gone, however the previous few months have seen the imaging icon struggle again from the brink of irrelevance. Now the corporate’s planning to push a Kodak-branded smartphone, and fortunately it isn’t going to sue everybody within the enterprise alongside the best way this time. To be clear, Kodak will not truly make its personal units — as an alternative, it will farm out a lot of the improvement work to an English firm referred to as Bullitt (you realize, the individuals behind these uber-rugged Caterpillar telephones). Oh, and it will not look something just like the mockup you see above… we hope.

The small print are nonetheless fairly scarce at this level, however Kodak’s first telephone will clearly play up the corporate’s images chops. Alas, there isn’t any point out in the official PR about sensor sizes, lens apertures or devoted imaging hardware of any type. In reality, it looks like we could be taking a look at a tool that does all of its visible heavy lifting (assume “bespoke picture seize, administration and sharing options”) by way of software program. That would not essentially be horrible, however actually, why slap the historic Kodak model on a tool that does not appear outfitted to do it justice? We cannot move judgment on the factor till we see it at CES in a number of weeks; this is hoping we’re in for a pleasing shock.
