This might just win back the hearts of customers. I find this thing having a strong resemblance to a mobile phone. Maybe sooner we'll have nikon mobile, too.

10x zoom, 1080p, OIS, decent sized CCD sensor, OLED screen camera/android mode and the usual android goodies, such a sweet package for a hybrid smart camera

I really don't get the point of this. Just like a tablet, this just doesn't make any sense to me.
Don't tell me someone would browse the Internet or play Angry birds on his/her camera

The Android OS is far more flexible than just to function as a generic smartphone.

Online photosharing sites, direct software updates, camera effects, etc can all be done via a proper mobile OS now. Instead of the old update-via-sdcard method.

I think this is a smart move by Nikon (although Panasonic had it first on a Lumix phone that never made it outside Japan) since it makes adding features much easier. This also targets shutterbugs that want some Android features (Facebook, instagram, twitpic, picasa) but may not want them on their phone. This removes the extra step of transferring to your phone, and using up battery life.
