New Sony Cybershot G3 shyly revisits wireless

Different digital camera manufacturers have tried, but despite the wifi mania in other sectors of technology, wireless digital cameras remain a very small niche. Part of it perhaps is the unavailability of "exciting" wireless models, part of it may be that people just don't care because they are already carrying wireless-enabled devices (laptops, netbooks, etc) that can be used to upload their pictures.

With that as an unnecessary preface, Sony has introduced the Cybershot G3, a long-term follow-up to their 2007 Cybershot G1.

The camera has the following specs of interest:
+ $500 price (ouch!) (already available for pre-order (Amazon)).
+ complimentary AT&T WiFi access to Sony's upload page until 2012
+ 4gb internal memory (ideal for MemoryStick haters)
+ face, smile, and passive-aggressive eyelash detection ;-)
+ 3.5" really widescreen LCD
+ built-in web-browser
+ 10mp sensor
+ 4x optical zoom with "real" stablization
