Kingston Technology Adds miniSDHC To Expanding SDHC Flash Family
4GB miniSDHC Memory Cards Poised to Support Next Generation Mobile Phones, Digital Devices Requiring Larger Capacities, Faster Speeds -- in Smaller Form Factor
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced it is expanding its line of Secure Digital™ High-Capacity (SDHC) memory cards with the introduction of a 4GB miniSDHC card, available in Class 2, 4 and 6 speed ratings. The higher capacity and faster speeds offered by Kingston® miniSDHC cards make them ideal for supporting new, smaller-profile multifunction phones and digital devices able to take advantage of the advanced expansion memory platform.
“As sleeker, more sophisticated mobile phones, PDAs and MP3 players offer digital imaging, music, video, mobile TV and games, the need for higher data transfer rates, increased storage and smaller form factor expansion memory becomes greater”
“As sleeker, more sophisticated mobile phones, PDAs and MP3 players offer digital imaging, music, video, mobile TV and games, the need for higher data transfer rates, increased storage and smaller form factor expansion memory becomes greater,” said Jean Wong, Flash memory product manager, Kingston. “Kingston is ready with miniSDHC memory to support the popular but storage-hungry advanced features of these next generation digital devices,” continued Wong.
Able to hold more than 2,000 images, 750 digital music tracks or 4.5 hours of MPEG4 video, the Kingston 4GB miniSDHC card format surpasses capacities beyond the 2GB threshold of the original miniSD card format. Each speed class designation reflects the minimum sustained data transfer rate (DTR) of megabytes per second (MB/s). For example, a Class 2 SDHC card has a minimum DTR of 2MB/sec, while a Class 6 SDHC card has a minimum DTR of 6MB/sec. Though identical in physical size, the miniSDHC is compatible with miniSDHC host devices only and not backward-compatible with standard miniSD-enabled devices or readers.
Backed by a lifetime warranty and 24/7 technical support, Kingston miniSDHC Flash memory cards are available through distributors, resellers, retailers, e-tailers and online at www.shop.kingston.com.
