Eye-Fi: WiFi SD Card For Digital Cameras

eye-fi.jpgCNET reports that this fall Eye-Fi will launch a Wi-Fi enabled SD card for digital cameras. Their $100, possibly 2GB, SD card will retain the form factor of traditional cards and only use battery power when transmitting photos. Eye-Fi hopes to have about a dozen online photo sharing sites signed up by launch.

It’s an interesting concept… I’m not sure how well WiFi enabled cameras sell and how frequently that networked functionality is used, but I do believe there’s a market for this service. Though the biggest challenge in this venture is getting the interface right – How/where do I configure the card and how do I initiate transfers? Looks like they’ll at least offer a web configuration portal
