Reported by Angus Leung
SanDisk Corporation 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.
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™ Micro Reader that plugs directly into a USB 2.0 port to assist in this quick transport and easy management of digital content.
With 8GB of digital storage, for example, consumers will be able to store 1,000 songs, 1,200 photos and 21 hours of video - more than enough storage to drive from Perth to Darwin without hearing the same song twice, fill six photo albums with images and watch both Star Wars trilogies and the Matrix trilogy.
Expected Pricing and Availability:
SanDisk Mobile Ultra memory cards are available now throughout Australia, with the following recommended retail prices (RRPs).

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.
