SanDisk Mobile Ultra Cards

Normally reserving the Ultra name for its larger camera-focused cards, SanDisk today launched its Mobile Ultra lines of memory cards. The microSDHC and Memory Stick Micro cards are built for high-speed transfers and are intended for media phones, SanDisk's own Sansa players, and nearly any handheld that depends on fast transfers to load up on music, GPS map data, and other large files. SanDisk doesn't list transfer speeds but claims that the maximum 8GB of storage is enough to hold 1,000 songs, 1,200 images, and 21 hours of cellphone-quality video at the same time.

Every card comes bundled with a unique pocket card reader that plugs directly into a USB 2.0 port while taking up little more space than the connector and the card itself would need. Cards come with 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB of storage regardless of the format; microSD cards are priced at $35, $60, and $120 respectively, while their Memory Stick Micro parallels each cost $40, $70, and $130. All the cards should be available starting from early June with the launch expanding to other areas through the rest of the month.
