SanDisk is touting their new high capacity flash memory cards as ideal for new feature-rich multimedia handsets supporting Micro SDHC. An 8GB card has the ability to store more than 2,000 digital songs, or more than 5,000 high-resolution pictures, or up to 5 hours of high-quality MPEG 4 video.
"With these new cards, any mobile phone with a compatible microSDHC slot will have just as much storage as the largest-capacity iPhone," said Jeff Kost, vice president and general manager of the Mobile Consumer Solutions division at SanDisk.
The two new cards are rated Class 4 by the SD Association, an industry standards board, meaning they have a sustained write speed of 4MBps. In addition, the company announced the availability of a new 4GB Memory Stick Micro (M2) card that will retail for $99.99.
