CES 2015: Toshiba announces the world’s first SDHC card with built-in NFC and FlashAir III wireless cards.

Toshiba has made some interesting announcements at this year’s CES, the latest being an SHDC card with built-in NFC (Near Field Communication) which lets you view thumbnails of the images and check the storage space on the card.Toshiba has added NFC to a SDHC memory card, allowing consumers to check the card’s contents by tapping it against their NFC phone instead of plugging it into a PC or digital camera.This new Toshiba SDHC card with NFC can be used with your Android smartphone to work out how much space you have on the card, and to also preview thumbnails of your photos. By holding an NFC-enabled AndroidTM smartphone, with the app “Memory Card Preview” [3] installed, over the memory cards lets you preview the available storage space, as well as 16 thumbnails (max.) of the photos stored in the card.

This new system will make it easier for photographers handling multiple memory cards to find exactly the one they’re looking for without the hassle of plugging cards into devices. UHS-I mode is only available with UHS-I compatible devices. [2] The product is labeled based on the memory chip(s) it contains, not the amount of memory capacity available for data storage by the end user. It seems a bit handicapped considering it just gives you a preview of 16 images and storage space available, two things which seem quite redundant as you already can preview images on your camera itself and the number of images which can be shot, is always indicated numerically on your camera display.

Toshiba says the new SDHC cards will be available in capacities of 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB starting in February 2015, and that the Android app will hit the Google Play Store at exactly the same time. Toshiba Corporation, a Fortune Global 500 company, channels world-class capabilities in advanced electronic and electrical product and systems into five strategic business domains: Energy & Infrastructure, Community Solutions, Healthcare Systems & Services, Electronic Devices & Components, and Lifestyles Products & Services. Toshiba also announced its third generation of FlashAir III wireless SD cards at CES, which lets the card act as its own wireless LAN access point for sharing images to smartphones, tablets and laptops. Guided by the principles of The Basic Commitment of the Toshiba Group, “Committed to People, Committed to the Future”, Toshiba promotes global operations towards securing “Growth Through Creativity and Innovation”, and is contributing to the achievement of a world in which people everywhere live in safe, secure and comfortable society. Founded in Tokyo in 1875, today’s Toshiba is at the heart of a global network of over 590 consolidated companies employing over 200,000 people worldwide, with annual sales surpassing 6.5 trillion yen (US$63 billion).

The FlashAir III SD cards are expected to come in capacities such as 16GB priced at $80 or approx Rs 5,100 and 32GB priced at $100 or approx Rs 6.350.
