Kodak Ships First Wi-Fi Consumer Digital Camera

Eastman Kodak Company announced commercial shipments of the world's first Wi-Fi consumer camera.

Kodak said its 4-megapixel EASYSHARE-ONE camera combines the power of sharing, taking, organizing, and printing pictures into a single product.

Kodak's EASYSHARE-ONE camera has the ability to send e-mail from the camera, to connect to the KODAK EASYSHARE Gallery at home and on-the-go from thousands of hotspots worldwide, to store up to 1,500 favorite pictures, and to optimize viewing and operation via touch screen and graphical menus.

Kodak is working with leading wireless hotspot companies to make sharing pictures across town, across the country, or across the globe as easy and convenient as possible.

EASYSHARE-ONE camera purchasers receive a complimentary, camera-specific trial service in conjunction with major hotspot providers.

Current preferred service providers include T-Mobile USA, with more than 6,000 T-Mobile HotSpot locations across the United States; T-Mobile International, with over 5,000 hotspot locations in Germany (in conjunction with T-Com) and more than 800 hotspot locations in the United Kingdom; and Telstra, with over 850 Telstra Wireless Hotspot locations in Australia.
