Kingston reader, 8GB SDHC

Kingston has a pair of unique entries for the PMA expo. The first is an 8GB SDHC card (not pictured), which is still a rarity despite the theoretical 32GB limit for SDHC. There will also be three versions of the card, in Class 2, 4 and 6 speeds -- a minimum of 2, 4 and 6MB/s, respectively. Exact speeds have not been mentioned.

Complementing the new cards is the DataTraveler Reader, which combines a USB 2.0 flash drive with a card slot that reads several different formats, including SD, SDHC, miniSD, microSD, and MMC. When plugged into a computer, the Reader is automatically assigned two different drive letters. It should be available by the end of the month in 1, 2 and 4GB sizes, with prices starting at $20. The 8GB SDHC cards should already be on sale for $110-130 from select retailers, though not Kingston itself.
