"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.1 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.2

Toshiba will reinforce and extend its leadership of the memory business by further enhancing its FlashAir™ line-up.
