I have just been playing with a Kodak WiFi camera that my friend brought back from the US - does anyone know if it is possible to connect it to a PPC PDA?? I can get the camera to connect to my PC and thought it would be cool if I could connect it to my mobile device as well.

i think it needs a software to run/listening to a certain port. i read that with the wifi you can essentially, take photo without any memory card, as the photos will save directly to the PC. and of course you can transfer files without cable too...

Yes, it uses a special service and driver, which are not available for mobile devices.

I have just purchased the new Nikon P2 WiFi camera - it can transfer images to the PC via WiFi - or alternatively take pictures and send them directly to a PC (without having to store them on an SD card - great for taking pictures around the home close to the WiFi network!). Video streaming is not supported.

Is it like the Kodak one that needs a program on the PC for this transfer to work?

I found it a lot more user friendly than the Kodak - You have to load a confiuration utility on the PC to specify the network connection, but once that is sorted it works quite well. I have been playing with ad-hoc partnerships and they are a little tempermental - but once you have the connection setup it works well.

Not even an i-mate SP5 or Nokia 9300i???

WiFi is just WiFi, but guess you're right if it has additional 'photo' code/applications/drivers that need to be loaded on the target host.

Guess it'll happen one day not to far away. OR some mad bunny will build GSM/CDMA MMS into a camera....

Not even then. One thing is the transport of data, another thing is what to do with this data.

Same as having a TCP/IP stack on your computer - it will move data around, but it's only one of the layers (actually according to the OSI model, TCP in the transport layer, IP in network layer).

You would still need an application layer to use the data (an email client, a web browser, a ftp client, whatever else).

Can someone implement it for other devices? Certainly could, as an application layer, based on the same protocol the camera currently uses.
