Yesterday Sandisk took the wraps off its brand-new 4GB miniSD High Capacity (SDHC) flash card, offering fast speed and large capacity to meet the needs of storage-intensive applications.
Sandisk said the 4GB capacity can store more than 2,000 high-resolution digital photos, more than 1,000 digital songs or up to 8 hours of MPEG 4 video. The new 4GB memory card is also being positioned to meet the growing need for large-capacity, high-speed storage for the mobile phone market.
“SanDisk is responding to the next-generation demands of cell phone makers and users, who increasingly see their phone as their camera, video player, gaming and music devices,” said Yoram Cedar, executive vice president of handset business and corporate engineering at SanDisk.
Based on the SD Association 2.0 specification, the new card is a member of the SDHC family. SDHC is the new designation for any SD or SD-based card that is larger than 2GB and adheres to the SD 2.00 specification, a completely new design that is required for cards and hosts to support 4GB to 32GB capacities.
