    Just caught this story on Gizmodo.. there are some minimal workarounds to make the magic happen but thy seem easy enough..

    --short except--
    If you have an Eye-Fi SD Card and an iPad, you can ditch Apple's iPad Camera Connection kit right now. Just use the app ShutterSnitch, which sends the photos on your Eye-Fi directly to your iPad (and iPhone).

    It's a sorta roundabout way of getting things done, but it works. You'll need an Eye-Fi SD card, the ShutterSnitch app, a router (or mifi), and oh, an iPad and a camera. The router is needed because sadly, your iPad can't create its own Wi-Fi network.

    Easier (and cheaper) to just use the camera connection kit. I used mine for the first time over the weekend at an out of town wedding. Twenty minutes after the reception was over I was passing the iPad around with 177 wedding pics.

    Yes, works great. Have it. Love it.

    Here's the problem. Without a unified document storage location, the two methods are not interchangeable. Ie, I cannot easily save files imported by either method to the same location so that the rest of my workflow can remain the same.

    Without this key feature, we are going to get stomped on by android tablets in the very near future.

    I have an entire 'rushed to market' theory in my head that I will save you from reading, but basically, it's my personal self assurance that the feature is coming 'in autumn'.
