Kodak WiFi Camera (EasyShare One)
CNET the new Kodak EasyShare One which is the one of the first cameras to come with a built in wireless option, in this case WiFi. Putting WiFi or Bluetooth in a camera seems like a no-brainer to me given the usefulness of wireless picture sharing and file transfer, and how little the necessary chips now cost, and I am sure that we are going to see this become a standard feature on mid to- high-range digicams over the next 1-2 years. Being able to send pictures via Bluetooth from a camera phone is already a common feature.

Once they've got the file sharing feature in place it's only really a matter a firmware to be able to leverage other devices, like using a Bluetooth GPS receiver to geocode pictures or Bluetooth headsets for a combo MP3/camera.

Unfortunately CNET did not think much of the EasyShare One, poor image quality and a slow UI leading to a 5.6/10 rating.
