Toshiba Electronics Europe has expanded its range of next-generation FlashAirTM wireless LAN SD cards, with the launch of a 8GB SD card. The card also features a new “internet pass-through” mode that further simplifies photo sharing. Once a mobile device is connected to the FlashAir card, the internet pass-through functionality enables the device to access the internet via a wireless access point. This removes the need for users to swap between a WiFi connection and the FlashAir card when uploading images to social media sites.
This new functionality will also be made available for the recently introduced 8GB and 16GB Speed Class 10 FlashAir cards running earlier firmware versions, which can be updated by using the Firmware Update Tool.
