CES 2012: A First Look at the Samsung InTouch Camera

1:12 /

From CES 2012, Bridget Carey takes a First Look at the Samsung InTouch Camera, a device that lets you use your television to make Skype calls.

Hi, I'm Brigitte Carey and we're here backstage at CNET's booth to get a 1st look at a new product from Samsung, the Samsung inTouch Camera. Now, this is something that turns your existing television device into a Smart TV by playing a camera on top of it and it lets you do video chat conferencing with Skype. So what you need is HD TV Wi-Fi at your home and Skype account so you can talk to people anywhere using your television that have been hunched over your computer screen. And this is the trend we're seeing now at CES. There's a lot of companies having these devices that you stick on top of your television to do web conferencing because let's face it, how many times are we buying a brand new TV. So this makes it easier for you. It's gonna be $200 coming out in March and has several features right now. It actually runs on Android and has a couple of Apps for You tube, web browsing, photos, and camera. You have Google news and Google weather and in time, they'll be able to add more different apps to it. So there you have it from back stage at CNET's booth. We have the Samsung inTouch Camera.
