There's no word yet on exact specifications, a market price, or release date, but the Lumix camera will have the capability to directly upload photos from the camera to Picasa using T-Mobile's wireless service. The Lumix camera will come with a year of T-Mobile HotSpot service, which is available in more than 8,500 public locations and can cost up to $40 per month depending on the subscription plan.
