Shout it with us: No more wires! That's the idea behind Samsung's PL90, the company's latest point-n-shoot camera with a built-in USB connector. No more fumbling around your bag for that USB cable, just flip open the connector and jam the digicam right into a free USB port.

"We want consumers to enjoy the entire photographic experience through the PL90, with the ability to capture, connect, and share pictures instantly and even charge on the move," said Sangjin Park , President of the Digital Imaging Business, Samsung Electronics. "In this fast paced world, we understand that our customers need to have these capabilities at their fingertips, and the PL90 puts this power in their hands. The PL90 is further evidence of the continued innovation behind Samsung cameras."

More than a one-trick pony, the PL90 comes packed with a respectable spec sheet. There's a 12.2 megapixel sensor, 4x optical zoom, a 2.7-inch LCD screen, 30FPS VGA movie mode, red eye fix, and a handful of proprietary technologies.

The PL90 will ship in September for $150.
