Sony has doubled the capacity of its removable media solutions from 4GB to 8GB.
The manufacturer increased the storage capacity as consumers are taking an increasing amount of multimedia on the road with them, including digital photos and documents.
“(These devices) are great when travelling or for those who don’t have ready access to a PC for storage,” according to assistant product manager for recording media, Maurice Satya.
The Memory Stick is designed for Sony’s Cyber-shot digital still cameras, DSLR camers, Handycams and PSPs and can store up to 19 hours of video playback for PSPs, up to 3000 digital photos and 2000 songs, Sony claims.
Meanwhile, the Microvault is designed for people who need to transfer data and multimedia between devices with a USB port.
The 8GB Microvault is available now with an RRP of $499.95 while the 8GB Memory Stick is available for $599.95.
