Memory card maker SanDisk is launching what it claims is the industry's first premium mobile phone storage cards at the CommunicAsia trade show. Labeled under the company's Mobile Ultra lineup, the new memory cards will offer improved transfer speeds when used in compatible devices. According to a representative at the SanDisk booth, the Mobile Ultra media transfers data at up to 20Mbps, more than four times the 5Mbps attainable with the current SanDisk Mobile flash cards.
The new Mobile Ultra memory cards will be available for the microSD/SDHC and Memory Stick Micro (M2) formats at 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB storage capacities. They will be priced on Asian markets between $20 and $63 for the microSD/SDHC cards, and $30 and $91 for the M2 media. Like the SanDisk Mobile memory card series, the new Mobile Ultra media are bundled with a USB reader. The Mobile Ultra cards also come with a 10-year limited warranty.
