toshiba-flashair

The Eye-Fi wireless card now has competition with the announcement of Toshiba’s FlashAir SDHC memory card. The new card works like Eye-Fi, but instead of just sending it can also receive files. Toshiba claims its FlashAir consumes less power than the Eye-Fi card.

The new card has an 8GB capacity and supports both peer-to-peer transfers and uploads to, and downloads from, servers. Samples will be available from November 2011 and sales will start in February 2012.

Toshiba said FlashAir’s embedded wireless communication function allows users to upload and download photographs to and from a server and to exchange photographs and other data with other devices, including digital cameras that are FlashAir compliant and, smartphones and PCs that support wireless LAN.
