Kodak and Cingular team up for cam phone prints

Nov 12 2003 - 01:52 PM ET | Cingular
Cingular Wireless has teamed up with photo mega-co Eastman Kodak to provide printing services for its customers with camera phones.
"Under the pact, Cingular Wireless customers will be able to transfer pictures taken with a camera phone onto Kodak's new Kodak Mobile service. Then, via a Web site, the picture can be stored for later viewing on the phone, e-mailed to others or printed."
The obvious flaw with this service is the inherent low resolution of today's camera phones, especially in the US. Although megapixel camera phones are starting to appear, the bulk of camera phones still shoot well under a printable resolution (for good results). However, the email portion sounds interesting.
