When Office Depot Canada went out of business, they cleared a few Eye-Fi 8GB cards for $30, which I snapped the remaining stock.  I wouldn't have shelled out anything more than $50 for 8GB, just not worth it (at 20Ft max range, I'll just use a cable).

My question is (having never used an Eye-fi either) how well can the antenna work when most SD format devices entirely enclose the card? are we talking like a six foot range?

The range for my eyefi is about 10-20 ft., depending on any number of variables (walls, etc.)

So the antenna and supporting logic circuitry is included in the card? How much does that increase the cost of the card?

This is just guess since Toshiba hasn't revealed any pricing information, but I would imagine these will be priced to compete with the Eye-Fi line, which goes for a little under $90 for an 8GB card.
