Camera Core: Italian company KDev has developed a Linux 2.6 device which allows camera-phone photos to be easily and instantly uploaded to the web.
With its GSM/GPRS cellular modem card, KDev’s FoxBox MMS accepts photos sent via multimedia messaging service (MMS).
As MMS messages are usually free to receive, KDev suggests that it would be inexpensive for web sites to use FoxBox MMS as the basis for games or photo contests.
No phone configuration is required; photos can simply be sent via MMS to the FoxBox’s cellular phone number.
FoxBox then converts them to a JPEG, GIF or other format suitable for the web. The photos can then be accessed remotely and managed as normal files using the FoxBox’s FTP and HTTP (WebDAV) interfaces.
