SanDisk Doubles Capacity Of Small Cards

These storage cards are used in a growing number of mobile phones with multimedia capabilities such as digital cameras, music players and video recording and playback. The announcement was made atthe CTIA Wireless I.T. & Entertainment 2004 trade show at Moscone Center where SanDisk is demonstrating products in Booth 924.

“The number of mobile phones with storage card slots is growing rapidly since removable memory provides many advantages in mobile phones that feature digital cameras, digital audio players, games and other applications,” said Nelson Chan, executive vice president and general manager of SanDisk’s consumer and handset business. “We expect to continue to increase capacities for these cards as these storage-intensive mobile phone applications grow in popularity.”

The SanDisk miniSD card includes an adapter allowing it to be used in any of the existing SD card devices and the SanDisk RS-MMC card includes a mechanical extender so that it can be used in any full-sized MultiMediaCard slot as well as SD host devices that support the MultiMediaCard.

The SanDisk miniSD and SanDisk RS-MMC cards are available at the suggested retail prices and availability as follows:

                 Capacities        US$               Availability                 ----------------- ----------------- -----------------SanDisk miniSD   64-256MB          $21.99-49.99      Now                 512MB             $69.99            NovemberSanDisk RS-MMC   128MB             $21.99            Now                 256 and 512MB     $49.99-$69.99     November
