I have roamed around some computer and accessories store and it seems that the wireless SD card is not yet very much available locally. I even noticed that some of stores staff actually don't know it yet. So far the only store, individual or company that I know who sells this Trek Flucard Pro Wireless SD card are PCWorx with a reasonable price of around Php3,900. You can also see some on online but just don't know if the shipping is included in it.
