Sharp has announced what it claims to be the world's smallest wireless LAN module, with the lowest power consumption to boot (although it seems like it'd be a bit hard for it not to). In your face, Nanoradio! Measuring just 8.0 x 7.6 x 1.3 millimeters, the module reportedly consumes 654mW of power sending data and 165mW receiving, with a mere 0.3mW of power consumed in standy. Sample units are set to start shipping next month for 20,000 Yen (or about $170 US), although we're guessing that price will come down a fair bit by the time these end up in your cellphone or handheld (or camera, for that matter).
