Price of SD cards drops

Panasonic on Tuesday slashed the price of its Secure Digital Memory Cards and plans this fall to more than double its output of the cards, which are postage-stamp-sized pieces of flash memory used in digital cameras, handheld computers and MP3 players. The 16MB card has dropped from $70 to $40; the 32MB card from $100 to $60; and the 64MB card from $160 to $100. Panasonic plans to release a 256MB card by the holiday shopping season and a 512MB card in early 2002.
