Eye-Fi X2.jpgThe Eye-Fi X2 range of wireless memory cards, first seen at this year’s CES, will now be available to purchase in the UK from April. Each memory card can remotely upload your files over a wireless connection and remove uploaded files once safely stored, meaning that you should never run out of space for a few more snaps.

Three different models make up the X2 range. The Eye-Fi Connect X2 is the cheapest of the bunch at £50. For that, you’re getting a 4GB SDHC with a 802.11n Wi-Fi connection built-in to automatically upload snaps and videos to Flickr, Facebook, Youtube, Picasa or one of 25 other options.

Next up is the Eye-Fi Explore X2 card, which has all the same Wi-Fi and upload features as the Connect. It also adds GPS geotagging to keep a track of where each photo was taken and doubles the storage space to 8GB for £100.

The Eye-Fi Pro X2 completes the range. It has all the same Wi-Fi, uploading and GPS tricks seen in the Connect and Explore models, but can also handle RAW files and create ad-hoc PC connections if you’re too far from a wireless router. The Pro X2 card costs £120.
