Kingston has the new 16GB microSDHC Class 10 memory card, touting minimum data transfer rate of 10MB/sec. The new card ships either as a stand-alone microSDHC card or with adapters.
“With the new speed class, host devices such as high-definition cameras or the latest smartphones are being designed to optimize their write performance to take advantage of the more responsive memory card speeds,” said Wendy Lecot, Flash card business manager, Kingston. “Now that the Class 10 card specification is five times faster than a Class 2 card, users will see swifter copying and transferring of photos, music, videos and e-books when using a multi-format card reader such as the Kingston Media Reader or MobileLiteG2 with a PC.
The 16GB version with and SD adapter retails for $139.
