Lexar Media Rolls-out miniSD Media Cards Worldwide
Designed For Mobile Phones and Handheld Devices, Japan’s Popular Memory Format Now Available Worldwide
miniSD is an extension of the SecureDigital (SD) memory format designed to offer flash-based storage for devices with limited internal space for removable memory. miniSD cards take up approximately 60 percent less area in a host device than the standard SecureDigital card. Lexar Media’s miniSD cards include an adaptor for easy transfer of data when using devices equipped with an SD card slot.
"Delivering a miniSD card to the market further demonstrates our commitment to be on the forefront of our industry," said Bobby Billman, Lexar Media’s vice president of marketing. "The market for converged devices is rapidly expanding. As it does, so does the market’s need for reliable, ultra- small storage solutions like miniSD."
miniSD is specifically designed for portable, storage-intensive devices such as camera- phones, digital still and video cameras, MP3 players and PDAs. For example, Lexar’s miniSD is compatible with the Panasonic X700 smartphone, a recently introduced multi-function device combining mobile phone, digital camera and personal assistant features.
Lexar’s miniSD cards are currently available with an estimated retail price of .99 (32MB), .99 (64MB) and .99 (128MB).
