Among a slew of new digicam introductions from Nikon this week is the Wi-Fi-enabled S7c, which features the ability to connect to a T-Mobile Web site for uploading digital images. The Wi-Fi serivice, called COOLPIX CONNECT, utilizes T-Mobile hotspots and allows users to e-mail images from the S7c camera to friends and family without being connected to a PC.
The first time that a COOLPIX S7c user connects the camera to the T-Mobile network, a one year of complimentary service kicks in (no mention of what it costs after that year).
The T-Mobile HotSpot service enables a total of up to 50MB of images to be sent to a T-Mobile server and stored for a maximum of two weeks. The server sends an email to each specified recipient with a thumbnail and a link to a Web page, thereby allowing COOLPIX S7c users to invite friends and family members to view the images right away, download full-resolution versions of the images to their own computer, or view a slideshow.
