Kodak, better known for their photography products, recently announced to enter the W-LAN market with its first Wi-Fi certified SD-card:

Share and print pictures wirelessly - anytime, anywhere. With your Wi-Fi enabled KODAK Digital Camera and the KODAK EASYSHARE Printer Dock Plus, printing wirelessly at home is a snap.

The Kodak Wi-Fi card looks interesting in terms of its size because it's not another Socket or SanDisk like SD-card but shorter:


  • 802.11b compliant
  • Enterprise and consumer security includes: 64/128-bit WEP, WPA
  • Secure Digital Input/Output (SDIO) Card
  • Requires SDIO enabled SD slot

While Kodak doesn't mention the support of Windows Mobile Pocket PCs, the card looks like an ODM version of the Spectec SDW-820 SD card which is announced to support Windows Mobile:

  • Interface SD I/O Ver.1.0 (Support Ver.1.1 or later)
  • IEEE802.11b / Wi-Fi complice, Infrastructure mode, aD-Hock
  • Operating Channel 11, 13 and 14 Channel
  • Operrating Range Outside 400m / Inside 100m
  • Type of Modulation 1 / 2 / 5.5 / 11Mbps
  • OS Support Windows Mobile 2003 (Windows CE v4.X) & Linux
  • Card Dimensions 38.5 x 24 x 2.1 mm
  • Weight Approx. 5g

According to Kodak, the KODAK Wi-Fi Card is available from June with a suggested retail price of US$ 99,95.
Not a bad price at all and I like the size. Looks like this card could becomes i-mate JAM owner's darling! :-)
