According to sources at gdgt, Sony has been secretly developing a point and shoot camera with a built-in 3G modem. The camera would operate much like a Cyber-shot model except that images could be uploaded directly from the device using a cellular network. Many cameras already come with Wi-Fi built in, however 3G is typically thought of as technology used by smartphones and tablets.
Smartphones are great at sharing pictures from anywhere, but the cameras that come with them vary widely in quality. The ability to upload better looking photos and video without connecting the camera to a computer would be appealing to many consumers. Sony is likely to launch a 3G digital camera with Facebook, YouTube and Flickr in mind.
