Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE:EK) has begun shipping its innovative, highly anticipated EASYSHARE-ONE zoom digital camera to retailers. Initial customer availability is expected within the coming days, dependent on individual retailer and store stocking schedules. Kodak is working with the world's leading wireless hotspot companies to make sharing pictures across town, across the country, or across the globe as easy and convenient as possible. When visiting a hotspot, EASYSHARE-ONE camera users can effortlessly send pictures with personal messages via e-mail, upload pictures to the EASYSHARE Gallery, and view and share existing Gallery albums -- all without a computer.

EASYSHARE-ONE camera purchasers receive a complimentary, camera-specific trial service in conjunction with major hotspot providers. Current preferred service providers include T-Mobile USA, with more than 6,000 T-Mobile HotSpot locations across the United States; T-Mobile International, with over 5,000 hotspot locations in Germany (in conjunction with T-Com) and more than 800 hotspot locations in the United Kingdom; and Telstra, with over 850 Telstra Wireless Hotspot locations in Australia.

Kodak is also working with other providers to expand broadband hotspot coverage in Europe and Asia, enhancing the thousands of public freespots available in venues such as airports, parks, business centers, and municipalities. Kodak designed the EASYSHARE-ONE model (US$599 MSRP, including the KODAK WI-FI Card) specifically for sharing, moving the camera experience from "point-and-shoot" to "point-and-share."

The KODAK EASYSHARE Gallery is available by visiting www.kodakgallery.com (U.S.), www.kodakgallery.co.uk (U.K.), www.kodakgallery.fr (France), www.kodakgallery.de (Germany), and www.kodakgallery.com.au (Australia).
