Kingston miniSDHC Cards
Kingston made its third announcement today by introducing its first miniSDHC cards for certain cellphones and portable music players. Unlike most announcements, the line varies by speed rather than storage. Every model breaks the traditional SD limit by holding 4GB of music or other data, but varies in speed from a Class 2 model that writes at a minimum 2MB per second to Class 4 and Class 6 cards transfer at 4MB and 6MB per second for video capture and other, more demanding tasks.
The memory maker ships all cards with housing that fits the miniSDHC card into a standard SDHC card slot on a PC or other portable devices. All the cards range between $62 and $66 and should be readily available today, but like most SDHC devices aren't backwards compatible with earlier, standard SD devices and readers.
