SanDisk Launches 16GB microSD and M2 Cards
Despite the fact the we never really fill up our masses of memory on our home PC's we manage to do this very easily on our mobile devices. With most of us owning a least a mobile phone, camera and mp3/4 player that is either already full or nearing capacity this announcement comes as a breathe of fresh air.
16gb Micro SDHC
SanDisk is bringing to market new 16GB* microSDHC™ and Memory Stick Micro™ (M2)™ mobile memory cards. The new, tiny 16GB cards are the world’s largest storage capacity for mobile phones and will be available at various retailers in the U.S., Europe and Asia in October.
The fingernail-sized 16GB memory cards allow consumers to “wake up” the many storage-intensive features offered by today’s portable handsets such as music and video playback, high-definition digital camera functions, gaming and GPS applications. In addition to the mobile phone, consumers can use the 16GB microSDHC card in a multitude of other devices, including a video camera, GPS receiver or a MP3 player with a microSD™ slot such as SanDisk’s Sansa® players.
SanDisk’s 16GB microSDHC card has an MSRP of £45 (excl. VAT) and the 16GB M2 card has an MSRP of £60 (excl. VAT).
MicroSD cards are designed for slot-equipped legacy mobile phones and can hold a maximum capacity of 2GB. Today’s microSDHC cards are available in 4GB, 8GB and now 16GB, are ideal for newer mobile phone models, most of which are compatible with these higher capacity cards. The Memory Stick Micro (M2) cards are designed for Sony Ericsson’s new generation of mobile phones, all of which are compatible with the 2GB, 4GB, 8GB and 16GB capacity levels. SanDisk’s 16GB mobile memory cards come with a five-year limited warranty.
16gb Memory Stick Micro (M2)
I'm not denying that mobile memory is very expensive however lets not forget what 16gb can do for us data freaks. Fingers crossed SanDisk send us a few of these before general release but if not I for one am hoping that its the early end of October and not the later.
