Samsung and Sony chose the same night to introduce their new flagship smartphones to the highly competitive market.After so many years of development , smartphone market has become quite mature and frankly speaking,it’s very hard to see sparks from the new stuff. Let’s check out the appearance first.
Nowadays most new digital cameras provide WiFi connectivity as that is a simple way to share your photos/videos instantly with your other devices. Toshiba finds out a solution for those old cameras without WiFi, introducing FlashAir SDHC memory card with wireless data transfer function.
It just looks like the same as the normal SD cards.According to some reviews, it could replace most SD cards flawlessly. As a Class 10 card,it could write in data up to 10MB/s.

There’s no hidden charge or monthly fee for the service,only as low as 2.20% of merchant discount rate(MDR) per transaction.
