Soon there will be another way to instantly post your vacation pictures to the web from your pocket camera.

Boingo Wireless and Samsung have teamed up to bring Internet access to Samsung digital cameras, starting with the CL80.

For those who purchase a CL80 (and other Samsung Wi-Fi enabled cameras later on), the point-and-shoot will ship and arrive with Boingo software pre-installed. The service is free for the first 90 days. After that, users will need to subscribe to the Boingo hotspot plan, which costs $7.95 per month.

Unfortunately, while CL80 (referred to as the ST5500 abroad) comes pre-loaded with this program internationally, US availability hasn't been revealed yet, but it should pop up soon.

The 14.2-megapixel CL80 costs $399, boasting a 3.7-inch touchscreen, 720p HD video recording capability and 7x optical zoom.
