Excerpt: Finally after hearing so much about this camera we got our hands on one (pardon the pun!) to put it to the test. On opening the boxes and removing the camera for the first time I was surprised at the weight and size of the camera. After reading and viewing online news releases, having it your hands is a totally different story.
Conclusion: If you're looking for an easy way to take and share digital photos, check out the Kodak EasyShare-One. It's the best wireless digital camera we've seen for consumers, though it's not without flaws.
Pros: Easy photo-sharing via wireless connection. 256MB of internal memory. Great user interface and help features.

Excerpt: The Kodak EasyShare One ($599) is more than just another digital camera. When it was introduced in early 2005 it was the world's first consumer camera with Wi-Fi connectivity (Canon and Nikon have since introduced their own Wi-Fi cameras).

Excerpt: Wi-Fi is all the rage. It’s moved from geeks to mainstream—especially when a hardly cutting-edge company like Kodak introduces a Wi-Fi- enabled digital camera.

Once on the site you can alert folks that you have images to share and access all of your images.
Pros: Wi-Fi enabled; huge 3-inch LCD screen
