Eye-Film SD WiFi Card

Engineers have successfuly put WiFi into SD memory cards before, but in the past this has resulted in either a bulge at one end (limiting the number of devices that can accept the card) or else the elimination of most, if not all, of the storage inside. Eye-Fi's new Eye-Film SD card will likely be the first SD card to include both storage and WiFi without compromising significantly in either direction. Beyond the 1GB of storage per card, the Eye-Film has an 802.11g wireless chipset that lets digital cameras transfer photos wirelessly without requiring explicit support from the camera firmware. While the new card is intended only for photography at the present, the company is investigating the possibility of using the card for PDAs and smartphones. Eye-Film cards will undergo testing within the next few weeks, and should be ready soon afterwards for an undetermined price.
