Kingston Launches microSDHC Cards
0Overall Score

Kingston has released its new microSD High-Capacity (SDHC) flash memory card line-up, starting with a 4GB microSDHC card with a Class 4 speed rating.

The company claims that its new microSDHC 4GB card may become the predominant mobile memory standard as more handset manufacturers, including Blackberry, HTC, LG, Motorola, and Nokia have mobile phones that are or will be microSDHC-compatible.

Kingston’s Regional Manager Manager for ANZ, Vaughan Nankivell said, “As next-generation mobile phones promise cutting edge functionality in ever-smaller form factors, demands increase on hardware to deliver these features, particularly in the area of expansion memory where storage and read/write performance becomes greater. Kingston is following the natural progression of mobile technology and we timed our microSDHC roll-out to be in step as the need materialises.”

Kingston’s 4GB microSDHC card promises to hold more than 2,000 images, 1,000 digital music tracks or up to 8 hours of MPEG4 video. And while identical in physical size to the original microSD card, microSDHC is compatible with microSDHC host devices only.
