Boosted capacity, speed highlight new revision enhancements
The makers of the world's first wireless memory card, the Eye-Fi, have announced a new Eye-Fi Pro X2 16GB Class 10 card that increases both storage and speed capabilities, while providing wireless upload of photos and videos from cameras. The new 16GB card provides twice the storage capacity of the prior Pro X2 card, and the Class 10 performance delivers fast read and write speeds. The new Pro X2, like Eye-Fi's other X2 series cards, enables users to directly wirelessly connect a camera to a mobile device, or use an Wi-Fi network to move content directly to a computer.
The Eye-Fi Pro X2 16GB card is available for pre-order for $100 from Amazon.com. With the launch of the new Eye-Fi Pro X2 16GB card, the previous Eye-Fi Pro X2 8GB and the Eye-Fi Mobile X2 8GB will be reduced from $100 to $80, and $80 to $60, respectively.
