By regular digicam standards, the SH100 has slightly above-average specs, like one of Samsung's DualView models, but without the front-facing LCD. But it's slightly more interesting than that: It packs WiFi b/g/n capabilities for easy sharing, and it can also be controlled with an Android phone or tablet app. The big theme at CES 2011 was cross-platform connectivity; phones, tablets, computers, TVs, and pretty much any mobile device will all soon be able to work together to carry your virtual identity across platforms. The SH100 was the only digital camera at the whole show that figured into the scheme, so if connectivity floats your boat more than picture quality or features, the SH100 is for you. While we're not totally wowed by the SH100, we're giving it a few more points than it probably deserves thanks to its innovative connectivity.
