Toshiba announces new 32GB FlashAir SDHC Memory Card with Internet Pass thru Mode feature
Toshiba today announced the expansion of its line-up of FlashAir, the SDHC memory card with embedded wireless LAN communications, with the launch of the latest 32GB card. FlashAir is an SDHC memory card that incorporates a wireless LAN chip set plus an antenna for wireless communications. The card supports wireless sharing and transfers of photos from digital cameras to smartphones and tablets.
The new 32GB card has a new feature, Internet pass thru mode, which enables Internet connection even while the smartphone is connected to FlashAir, by using other access points, such as the wireless LAN router in the home. With the new feature, users do not have to manually change the wireless network settings of smartphones when downloading photos from the card to smartphones, uploading photos to SNS from a smartphone, or sending email.
The new feature can also be used in the current FlashAir W-02 line-up (product names: SD-WC008G and SD-WC016G) by updating the firmware of the card. The new Toshiba FlashAir card will go on sale on November 16th in the Japanese market, and sales in markets around the world will follow.
