microSD card now carries Wi-Fi functionality
Remember the Eye-Fi card that made waves some time ago with its ability to offer Wi-Fi connectivity alongside a sizeable amount of memory whenever you plug it into a non-Wi-Fi-capable device? Well, technology has advanced to a point when Wi-Fi connectivity is shoved into something much smaller – a microSD memory card this time round. Just in case you just crawled out from a rock or something, a microSD memory card is no larger than your fingernail, which makes this feat all the more amazing. Available from KDDI Corp., it comes mounted with a wireless LAN IC compliant with IEEE802.11b/g, a transceiving antenna, passive components and so on. There is no word on a release date as at press time though.
