Kodak launched four M-series cameras at CES 2010, but the top of the line was the 14-megapixel EasyShare M580. The $200 camera comes in silver, brown, pink, purple, and blue versions and features a wide-angle lens with an 8x zoom.
On back is a nice-looking 3-inch LCD and Kodak's usual control scheme. However, the Share button's options are expanded beyond printing and e-mail to include tags for immediate upload to YouTube, Facebook, Flickr, and Kodak Gallery. Tag your photos, connect to a computer by USB, and a small Kodak application handles the rest. I forgot to ask about what the "IR" spot is for in the middle of where you rest your thumb, but my guess is that it is for an optional remote control--not for transmitting photos.
As with a lot of Kodak's cameras, the M580 shoots 720p HD-quality video at 30fps. Thankfully, no special docks are required to view photos and videos on your HDTV, since there's an HDMI port built in as well as a USB port for connecting to a computer.
