Nikon Digital Cameras Offer WiFi Connector to T-Mobile Hotspots

The new Nikon COOLPIX S7c digital camera will offer wireless access T-Mobile Hotspot Wi-Fi Service, enabling camera users to wirelessly share photos with family and friends.

The COOLPIX S7c is a 7.1 megapixel, 3x Nikkor Zoom ED lens camera. The first time that a COOLPIX S7c user connects the camera to the T-Mobile network at any of the thousand T-Mobile HotSpot locations nationwide, that user's one year of complimentary T-Mobile HotSpot service is automatically activated**. Choosing Wi-Fi mode on the COOLPIX S7c in a U.S.-based T-Mobile Hot Spot location automatically connects the camera to the T-Mobile network, activates the complimentary T-Mobile HotSpot service, and readies the camera to share pictures through a high-speed Wi-Fi connection.

The T-Mobile HotSpot service enables a total of up to 50MB of images to be sent to a T-Mobile server and stored for a maximum of two weeks. The server sends an email to each specified recipient with a thumbnail and a link to a Web page, thereby allowing COOLPIX S7c users to invite friends and family members to view the images right away, download full-resolution versions of the images to their own computer, or enjoy the images as a slideshow.

T-Mobile HotSpot service in currently available in 7,000 U.S. locations, including select Starbucks, Borders, FedEx Kinko's, Hyatt Hotels & Resorts, Red Roof Inn locations, Sofitel and Novotel hotels, and airline clubs.
