New AP Cam from polaroid?

Anybody seen this yet?

http://www.avs.ca/detail.php?b=18&c=314&p=1179

It some in at just under 5 ounces, no zoom lens, 4.2 Meg pixels
Selectable ISO setting.

The only issue I see is that it's from polaroid...
The reviews I've seen about polaroid camera's would seem to indicate
a high suck/no suck ratio.

Steve's digicams has reviews of other polaroids-not this one. and they are all over the board.. some say pretty good, but most say pretty bad

Anyone have good experience with polaroid digi-cams? And think this could be a good one.. BTW it has a MSRP of $250CA, which is like $190US so it seems to have a decent price..

One other no-good-ness is the lack of video out.

Any thoughts?

They're probably all junk except the X530 with the foveon chip. I've used a Sigma 3mp foveon and the pictures look better than a Sony 8mp. Of course the X530 is relatively expensive and probably too heavy for AP.
