Eye-Fi cards have been around since 2006 as a way to wirelessly transmit your digital camera photos to your computer or mobile device. The catch was that you had to connect to a Wi-Fi network before in order to do so. Not so with the new Eye-Fi Mobi.

The new Mobi cards will let you transfer photos absolutely anywhere, since the card is its own WiFi hotspot. You just have to download a free app for iOS or Android and connect it with your card, a process that Eye-Fi claims is simple and seamless. We hope so, because the setup process for the original Eye-Fi cards was a real pain.

The Eye-Fi Mobi is available now at $US50 for an 8GB card, and $US80 for a 16GB card (both Class 10). [Eye-fi]
