Toshiba has launched the world’s 1st SD memory card to feature built-in NFC technology and made the announcement at in Las Vegas at this year’s CES event. Unlike other wireless SDHC cards which make it simple to transfer images, the new NFC SD card has instead been designed to let its users see what is stored on it using a suitably-enabled smartphone, without than having to put it into a camera or computer.
By holding an NFC-enabled Android mobile device, with the app “Memory Card Preview” installed, over the memory cards lets you preview the available storage space, as well as a maximum of 16 thumbnails of the photos stored in the SD card. An internet pass-through feature also allows users to access the SD card and digital web simultaneously, plus the card boasts enhanced photo sharing and management features, with a free FlashAir mobile app making it easy to share content with iOS and Android mobile devices. Sales will begin early this year in February, but the price has not been officially released yet.
