Fujifilm FinePix XP130 adds Bluetooth to a rugged compact camera

It’s almost a dead ringer for the older model except for one important new feature: Bluetooth connectivity.

Google Clips camera launch nears, drops by FCC

There have been a lot of Google and Android related product announcements and launches in the past months, it’s almost too easy to forget that at least one new, and odd, device hasn’t yet.
