Lexar creates its own SD WiFi Memory Card. It’s a card-based Eye-Fi cards.
Eye-Fi cards are known to be SD cards with integrated Wi-Fi, doing possible send photos automatically to PC’s or Web Sites. Before using these cards, you must configured with a computer, indicating which is the target computer (or website), in addition to insert configuration data of the wireless network that you are going to use to connect.
Eye-Fi company manufactures three types of cards:
- Eye-Fi Home (80$). Just to send photos to a PC within a local area Wifi.
- Eye-Fi Share (99$). Lets you send and upload photos to a PC or a website.
- Eye-Fi Explore (130$). Allows geotagging the photos (using Skyhook) and send them to a PC or upload to a website. Besides, allows the use of Hotspot access for one year.
All these cards have a capacity of 2GB, have to be configured before you use them and the photos just are sent when they detect that are within the range of wifi network.
