So one mystery about the Samsung Galaxy Camera has just been cleared up. The unique "cellular" camera, which runs Google’s Android 4.1 (aka Jelly Bean) and has WiFi and either 3G or 4G connectivity, will be available from AT&T and use that company's cellular network.

Other questions still remain on the Samsung Galaxy Camera, however, including when it will be available, what the price will be, and how much a plan will cost to run the camera on AT&T's cellular network and share photos wirelessly. (None of this was answered in a press release issued today by AT&T.)

Don't expect the Galaxy Camera to be cheap, though. It's a pretty decent camera on its own, with a 16.3-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor, a 21x (23-483mm equivalent) f/2.8 zoom lens, optical image stabilization, full 1080p HD, and a nearly 5-inch LCD touch screen on back. The most unique thing about the Samsung Galaxy Camera though will be its ability to share images immediately on social networks with its wireless connectivity just like a smart phone.

Stay tuned to hear more about this one. The Samsung Galaxy Camera, if it delivers on what it promises, has the potential to be a game changer.
