4G LTE wireless coverage is extending beyond smartphones and tablets.

Verizon Wireless on Tuesday said it will start selling the Samsung Galaxy Camera, the world's first 4G LTE camera, on Thursday, Dec. 13. It runs on Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) and allows you to shoot truly high-quality images and video, and then share them by sending them along VzW's high-speed network.Samsung Galaxy Camera

The carrier expects social-media enthusiasts to be particularly interested in this new product. It allows you to connect to your account (Twitter, Facebook, etc.) through the camera and upload pictures and videos of outings, concerts and parties as they happen.

The Galaxy Camera has a 4.8-inch HD Super Clear LCD touchscreen. Users have full access to Android apps like Instagram from the Google Play store. Other features include a 16-megapixel lens, 21x optical zoom lens and optical-image stabilization for clearer pictures, even while moving.

The Galaxy Camera sells online for $550 and comes in two colors: cobalt black (exclusive to VzW) and white. Verizon customers can add the device to their Share Everything accounts for the promotional price of $5 per month.

The device is expected to be available through other carriers as well.
