SanDisk 8GB SDHC card

Not long after Kingston's launch of one, SanDisk has followed suit with its own 8GB SDHC card, which should be capable holding roughly 2,000 songs, 4,000 photos, or 15 hours of MPEG-4 video. While it will come with its own MicroMate USB 2.0 reader, the card will not be especially fast, as it is rated at only Class 2 speeds -- approximately 2MB/s. It should ship in April for $190.

Mobile phone users may, however, appreciate SanDisk's forthcoming Mobile Premier microSD cards. Designed as high-performance models, the cards will come in 1 and 2GB capacities, and have a read speed of 10MB/s. Writing is done at 9MB/s. The Mobile Premier line will also bundle an adapter, enabling use with full-sized SD slots. The cards should launch in the spring for $45 and $70, respectively.
