Lexar microSD & miniSDHC
Coming in April are two new mobile SD cards from Lexar. The preeminent one is a 4GB miniSDHC card, marking the first time the company has ventured into that format. The size should be enough to hold roughly 1,000 songs, 100 hours of video, or over 4,000 photos. While support for miniSDHC is still rare in devices like cellphones, it should increase with subsequent generations. For more conventional storage the company is producing a 2GB microSD card, which will be useable in a vast majority of phones that rely on external media. Lexar has yet to suggest prices for either of the upcoming products.
