Toshiba Unveils Wireless SD Card, Joins Eye-Fi in the Revolution

Here’s some good news for people who find memory card readers and data cables a hassle — Toshiba has unveiled a new “FlashAir” SDHC memory card with built-in wireless LAN functionality. It’s similar to Eye-Fi‘s offerings, but Toshiba’s cards will offer something that Eye-Fi’s don’t: two-way transfer. This means they can not only send photos wirelessly, but receive photos as well — perfect for quickly exchanging photos on the go with a friend’s camera! You’ll be able to purchase the cards starting in February 2012.

    I know it’d be slow, but it’d be wonderful to transfer files over bluetooth. 

    I also haven’t explored much of the Eye-Fi card, but would the Toshiba card have an address? Obviously it’ll have an IP when connected but could I type in flash-air.local in my browser or other program and connect to it that way since it has two way functionality?

    These are answers I’d like to figure out closer to release.
