New Toshiba SDHC cards
Three new SD cards are in the works from Toshiba, one among them being the fastest of its type, the company claims. Its forthcoming 4GB miniSDHC card will be the first at the Class 4 level, having a sustained write speed of 4MB/s. The miniSD format is used primarily in devices like PDAs and cellphones. Toshiba is also working on a 4GB, general SDHC card, which will have a minimum sustained speed of 6MB/s, and a peak performance of 20MB/s. Rounding out the new lineup is a microSD card, filling in the 2GB gap in Toshiba's offerings. The SDHC and miniSDHC cards will be out in March of 2007, with the microSD product following in April.
