CES 2015: Kodak's first smartphone arrives but will anyone buy it? After teasing the device last week, one-time camera and film giant Kodak has used CES to introduce their first smartphone.
The mid-range IM5 is a basic smartphone with some special camera features but it is unclear who the device will appeal to.

Kodak's device has a 5-inch 720p touchscreen, a low-end 1.7 GHz octa-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage (with microSD expansion), Android 4.4 and dual 5MP/13MP cameras.

The company's "unique image management software" will have built-in social media sharing, editing (including filters) and the ability to print right from the app, since it will be compatible with many home printers.

Kodak is putting the IM5 up for sale in Europe for 229 off-contract starting in March and later in the U.S. for $249.
