Corsair Expands Flash Memory Line with New 2GB microSD
Corsair®, a worldwide leader in high performance enthusiast computer
products, today launched a new line of microSD™ removable flash memory cards to
further expand the company’s award-winning line of flash products. Available
immediately in capacities up to 2GB – the largest capacity available in the
world’s smallest flash memory card – the high capacity is essential to users who
store music, pictures, watch video, and use downloadable ring tones and address
books. The 2GB Corsair microSD cards will hold up to 500 MP3 songs or
approximately 4000 2megapixel photos.
“The digital convergence is here. Consumers are demanding mobile phones with
built in MP3 functionality. The microSD form factor is the ideal storage
solution as mobile devices continue to shrink in size and increase in features,”
said Richard Hashim, Director of Product Marketing at Corsair Memory. “With the
need to store more portable data on the go, it is essential to have a large
capacity storage device to house all the information. We expect to see
significant demand for the Corsair microSD products”
Based on the latest flash memory technology, each microSD card measures
one-forth the size of a standard Secure Digital (SD) card. Available in 512MB,
1GB and 2GB capacities, the microSD cards are designed for the latest generation
of mobile phones and devices that take advantage of the card’s high performance
and expanded storage.
Each microSD card is bundled with a standard SD adaptor to add usage
flexibility. With the SD adaptor, each microSD card can be used as a full size
SD card utilized in a variety of camera and cell phones.
