Sony Develops New Memory Stick for Bluetooth Called 'Infostick'

"Sony Corp. said it has developed a prototype of a new Memory Stick called "Infostick," which has the communication functions of Bluetooth."

The article says you have to insert the stick in a device to use it. I must not be understanding the entire purpose of Infostick -- what's the point of a wireless memory stick if you still have to insert it in the device?

Update: Wes is trying to explain this thing to me over e-mail. When I figure it out I'll share what I know. :-) Thanks Wes!
