Samsung's innovative new 4G-enabled Galaxy Camera is coming to Verizon Wireless with a price tag of $549, according to a press release from the mobile carrier.

Shoppers can buy the camera from December 13. Galaxy Camera combines the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system with high performance photography and Verizon's 4G LTE network: allowing users to shoot, edit and share high quality images and video.

"Social media enthusiasts will be able to connect to their accounts through their camera and upload pictures and videos of outings, concerts and parties as they happen," said Verizon on its Web site. "Shutterbugs and bloggers who post images on their sites will be able to upload photos over 4G LTE instead of waiting to use their computers at home."

Samsung first announced its Galaxy Camera in August 2012 at the IFA trade show in Berlin. The device combines the photographic capabilities of a small superzoom camera with the versatility and connectivity of a tablet computer featuring a 4.8-inch touch screen.

AT&T was the first, and so far only, US carrier to have the device, selling it for $499 with its HSPA+ 4G Network. Verizon's version, compatible with its 4G LTE network, is $50 pricier and comes in two colors - White and the Verizon exclusive Cobalt Black.

It's not a device you can make phone calls on but it does have the full functionality of a top-end compact camera with a 21x optical zoom lens (23-483mm f/2.8-5.9 equivalent) and a 16-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor. The sensor is 1/2.3 inches in size with an ISO capability of 100 to 3200 - perfect for low light conditions.

The touchscreen at the back is also HD Super Clear LCD and the device features 8GB of storage, although this can be expanded via micro-SD/SDHC/SDXC. It also has full access to Android apps from the Google Play store, giving you the ability to download social sharing apps such as Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

Verizon says that users will be able to add the Samsung Galaxy Camera to their Share Everything data plan for the promotional price of $5 per month. The mobile carrier hasn't said when it will end the promotional offer.
