Kodak investing in Wi-Fi for digital cameras
The new Kodak Easyshare-One camera allows users to e-mail pictures directly from the camera via Wi-Fi ((802.11b Wireless LAN). In addition to this, users can also view online albums directly on the 3" touch screen display. The images can be stored on the Kodak Easyshare Gallery service, the new brand for Kodak's Ofoto service. An automatic software update service will also be available so users can update their cameras on-line.

Users can insert the Wi-Fi card into the Printer Dock Plus, and pictures from a docked Easyshare digital camera can be transferred wirelessly to a computer on the home network for immediate viewing, sharing and printing. In addition, the Printer Dock Plus can then act as a wireless picture printer for WiFi-enabled devices such as desktops, laptops, and even the Kodak Easyshare-One digital camera.

The company also reached an agreement with T-Mobile USA Inc. to simplify online picture sharing using Wi-Fi outside of the home or office. Owners of the new Kodak Easyshare-One digital camera will have integrated access to T-Mobile HotSpot service, available at more than 5,000 convenient locations across the U.S. T-Mobile HotSpot service is available in more than 5,000 public access locations, including Starbucks coffeehouses, Borders Books and Music, FedEx Kinko's Office and Print Centers, Hyatt Hotels and Resorts, Red Roof Inns, airports and select American Airlines Admirals Clubs, Delta Air Lines Crown Rooms, United Airlines Red Carpet Clubs and US Airways Clubs.

All Easyshare-One camera purchasers will initially receive a free, camera-specific T-Mobile HotSpot trial. T-Mobile HotSpot subscription plans will be available for the Easyshare-One camera beginning later this year. Prices are yet to be determined.

The camera will retail for US$599 and the option Kodak Wi-Fi card will be US$99. The company plans to begin distribution by June 2005.
