MiniSD cards. 4Gb memory.
SanDisk has unveiled a miniSD card that can hold 4GB of information – the equivalent of around 1,000 songs.
However, to use the new card, customers will need handsets compatible with the high capacity (HC) SD card.
'Though standard miniSD and miniSDHC cards look identical in size and shape, only SDHC-compatible products will be able to accept the new miniSDHC cards…mobile phone makers will need to upgrade the firmware in their handsets so that memory slots can support the new card,' said a SanDisk spokesman.
The cards 4GB capacity would allow any compatible handset to hold as many tunes as a Nokia N91 – but using flash memory, rather than a hard drive.
