ez Sh@re’s WiFi SD card wirelessly transfers pics from cameras to iOS devices, gets comfy with Eye-Fi’s IP?
Last month Eye-Fi publically criticized the SD Association’s proposed WiFi SD card standard, noting that the proposed spec is very similar to Eye-Fi’s patented wireless technology. Today, a WiFi SD card from LZeal Information Technology Co., Ltd. called the ez Sh@re hit the FCC, perhaps the first of many wireless SD cards to get comfy with Eye-Fi’s intellectual property.
While it’s a bit difficult to understand LZeal’s poorly translated user manual, it appears that the ez Sh@re card wirelessly transfers pictures or video from your camera to the EZ.com website. Users can then download their pictures from EZ.com to their phone, tablet or computer. There’s also an ezSHARE app available on the Apple App Store, although it’s unclear if this is related to LZeal’s product.
At this point it’s hard to tell if the ez Sh@re card relies on the wireless spec proposed by the SD Association. The card does offer functionality that’s somewhat similar to Eye-Fi, and the ez Sh@re even looks a bit like the orange Eye-Fi cards.
