Toshiba today announced the FlashAir 2 wireless SD card, which allows customers to quickly, seamlessly and wirelessly share captured videos, images and even files. The SD card is available in a storage capacity of up to 32GB. It allows easy sharing of content as it serves as its own wireless LAN access point. Users can take advantage of this to easily and securely share multimedia content through PCs, smartphones and tablets.
Maciek Brzeski, vice president of product marketing and development, Branded Storage Products, at Toshiba says that the idea behind the FlashAir 2 was to enable users to “focus more of their time on capturing moments rather than uploading them.” As soon as photos and videos are taken with a digital camera, they can be instantaneously accessed and stored on multiple devices, simultaneously. With the Class 10 speed that the FlashAir 2 offers, users will be able to transfer content within seconds. Its Internet pass-through feature lets users access the card and internet at the same time, thus allowing them to upload images in real time. The built-in wireless LAN also allows for transfer even where there’s no internet connection. The FlashAir 2 is available in 16GB and 32GB flavors through Amazon, Newegg and Toshiba’s website, costing $79.99 and $99.99 respectively.
