    SanDisk Launches Industry's First Premium Mobile Memory Cards

    Advertisement



    SanDisk Corporation today announced the availability of SanDisk Mobile Ultra, microSD, microSDHC and Memory Stick Micro (M2) flash mobile memory cards, which are available in 2GB, 4GB and 8GB# capacities -- the industry's first premium mobile phone storage cards.

    Expected Pricing and Availability
    SanDisk Mobile Ultra microSD 2GB has a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of $34.99. The SanDisk Mobile Ultra microSDHC 4GB card has a MSRP of $59.99 and the SanDisk Mobile Ultra microSDHC 8GB card has an MSRP of $119.99. The SanDisk Mobile Ultra Memory Stick Micro M2 2GB has a suggested MSRP of $39.99, and the 4GB and 8GB# are priced at $69.99 and $129.99, respectively. SanDisk Mobile Ultra memory cards will be available at various retail outlets in early June, and are expected to be available throughout the world in mid-to-late June 2008.

    The microSD cards are engineered for slot-equipped legacy mobile phones and can hold a maximum capacity of 2GB#. The microSDHC cards, available in 4GB and 8GB#, 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 and 8GB# capacity levels. SanDisk Mobile Ultra cards come with a 10-year limited warranty.

    A must-have product for consumers who embody the digital lifestyle, the SanDisk Mobile Ultra high-performance cards are "best of breed" premium cards that provide fast side-loading speeds. This means that users will experience accelerated transfer rates of digital files to and from their mobile memory card and their computer. In addition to speed, SanDisk Mobile Ultra cards allow consumers to "wake up" the multimedia features of mobile phones by increasing the phone's storage capacity for maps, music, videos, photos, games and other essential applications. For avid mobile phone videographers, events and experiences captured by the phone's video camera can be quickly and efficiently transferred to social media or video-sharing websites. For added value and convenience, the card is bundled with a MobileMate(TM) Micro Reader that plugs directly into a USB 2.0 port to assist in this quick transport and easy management of digital content.

    "Mobile phone usage for multimedia activities, such as digital photography, music downloads, videos, and GPS functionality has doubled over the last two years, and spending on mobile media globally is expected to surpass $100 billion by 2012," said David Kerr, vice president mobile research, Strategy Analytics. "This product launch further proves SanDisk's ability to anticipate changing user needs and provide the market with the right mobile storage solutions at the right time."

    Michael Romero, vice president of Mobile Retail Business, SanDisk, said, "SanDisk's new Mobile Ultra line will make consumers' digital lifestyle more manageable by offering them greater ability to quickly transfer photos, maps, music, videos, games and other large file size content wherever they go. These cards are truly the most convenient way for people to store, move and play content using their mobile phones, so we're excited to introduce this high-performance, premium product to market to meet this need and growing demand."

    Good article Hayden, however I'm not sure how they are getting away with saying it's the industry's first "premium" memory cards. USB 2.0 is USB 2.0 no matter what company is making the memory card. I'd love to see their beta/test data proving their cards have faster read/write speeds than all the other competitors.....

    The 8700 does not have an SD card slot. All the newer ones come with support though.

    No they do not run on anything 8700 related. Only the newer BB's have micro sd/sdhc slots.

    man i really must be a weird-o. i'm a very patient person but when transferring data to my devices, i'm always wondering could it go any faster. i usually transfer larger files as i load my pearl as a storage hub or i use it for movies, and for my curve lots of stuff goes on there to.

    I just got an 8 GB MicroSDHC card this past weekend. Maybe I should have waited.

    I wonder: how much do transfer rates matter? If a card has a theoretical transfer rate 100x faster than current cards, isn't the new card still limited to the speed of the hardware? Or am I overlooking some critical point that does make a difference? ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
