Eye-Fi has announced their new product, the $149 Pro X2 8 GB SDHC Class 6 Wireless Flash Memory Card.  We like the upgraded 802.11N capability and the “unlimited card feature” which deletes your oldest pictures once they’ve been safely uploaded to your computer or online service.  Eye-Fi announced at Macworld that they support iPhoto even though it isn’t shown in the video above.

Eye-Fi’s biggest attribute, however, continues to be its Geo-tagging ability which it gains from pulling known Wifi hotspot coordinates (so not as acurate as real GPS).   Besides a handful of cameras and smartphones like the iPhone, few manufacturers have jumped on the GPS (or Wifi) bandwagon, something that has made these cards all the more valuable.
