SanDisk Beefs Flash Capacity In New Cards

High resolution digital cameras and the increasing sophistication of multimedia cellphones have driven flash memory manufacturers to broaden assortments and up capacities to pace the proliferation of memory-intense applications.

SanDisk announced new high-capacity memory guards aimed at the twin engines of flash memory growth — digital cameras and cellular phones.

To court this memory-hungry camera owner, SanDisk introduced its highest capacity SD, Memory Stick PRO and PRO Duo cards to date, doubling the previous maximum capacities. All the new high-capacity cards will ship in November.

A 2GB SD card will retail for $199.99; a 4GB Memory Stick PRO card will sell for $799.99; and a 1GB PRO Duo card will be available at $204.99.

SanDisk also doubled the maximum capacities of its miniSD and RS-MMC cards to 512MB.

Both cards will ship this month for a suggested $69.99. The miniature formats aim at multimedia cellphones and include adapters for use in the larger slots that house the full-size memory cards.
