New Eye-Fi memory card update transfers photos to mobile devices10 January 2011 15:22:26
A memory card update that can transfer photos directly from a camera to a mobile device is to released by Eye-Fi.
Eye-Fi produces memory cards with built-in Wi-Fi that allow users to link their cameras to PCs and Macs to upload photos directly to websites such as Flickr and Facebook.
But now the company has said it is to release a remote update to its memory cards and iPhone app that will enable wireless photo transfers to mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet PCs as well.
Called Direct Mode, it will work by creating a wireless hotspot from the memory card itself, which other devices can then connect to.
The update will be available for free from later this year for Eye-Fi X2 series memory cards.
Several manufacturers have unveiled new memory cards this week, including a new MicroSD card from Lexar and a high-speed CompactFlash card from SanDisk.
