Kodak is of course a giant in photography, and like many companies in that field, it has struggled over the last few years as smartphones have encroached on dedicated snappers. Sales have tumbled and the obvious move is for Kodak to go the other way and fight back. That seems to be the case as the company has teamed with Bullit Group to create a new range of Android smartphones.As you would expect, these devices will be geared towards photography, the ultimate camera phone maybe and the handsets will be for "consumers who want a high-end experience but aren't always as comfortable using increasingly complicated mobile devices." Bullit Group will be making the smartphone, a company that has experience with niche devices from JCB, Caterpillar, and Ted Baker. The tech will be developed by Kodak, and as a giant of the photographic world, I think the company needs to hit the ground running with one of the best camera experiences in the mobile world. The Kodak smartphones will be available early in 2015 and are likely to be launched during CES at the start of January.
