Belkin BT Phone Adapter

Belkin today tackled one of the most common problems of modern cameraphones. The Bluetooth USB Adapter with Kodak Technology uses the camera maker's photo upload process to simplify offloading images from a phone without needing a cable or a card adapter to fit frequently small microSD storage. The system can be set up simply enough that just bringing the phone within range will automatically upload photos to the computer, Belkin says. Bluetooth 2.0 also ensures that photos can reach the PC quickly without having to be resized or compressed.

The adapter is not limited to the Bluetooth photo transfer process and provides a PC connection for Bluetooth printers, hands-free earpieces, and other devices. Use of the adapter for general duties works with any Bluetooth-supporting operating system, though the Kodak phone feature requires a Windows Vista or XP computer. Most recent Motorola, Nokia, and Sony-Ericsson phones support the feature as well as several LG, Palm, Sanyo, and Samsung models. It should be available soon from the Belkin and Kodak online stores for $50.
