SanDisk and Lexar Say No to XQD and SD Wireless Cards

A few new cards were announced at CES last week that sound pretty exciting. The new standard for wireless SD cards seems to have quite a bit of potential, and the XQD card from the CompactFlash Association has, on paper, some impressive specs.

Despite the excitement, it seems that two of the biggest memory card companies around won't be having any part of these new cards. Both still plan to support CompactFlash over XQD. After all, CF cards have a long history and are still very popular.

To add to the decision, Lexar points out that their new 1000x CF card the company just announced is faster than the XQD cards that Sony is putting out.
