Kingston 16GB microSDHC
At the Mobile World Congress in Spain on Monday, flash memory maker Kingston released its largest capacity microSDHC memory card for use in mobile phones, at 16GB. The new product complements the company's existing microSDHC line-up that includes 4GB and 8GB capacities. Kingston says the latest handsets from LG, Motorola, RIM and Sony Ericsson support its new 16GB SDHC card, allowing handsets with 5-megapixel cameras to save more than 9,000 images.
The Kingston 16GB microSDHC ships with an SDHC card adapter, allowing its use in devices that support the larger cards, such as digital photo and video cameras. It is formatted to the FAT32 system, and will be capable of transferring data at a minimum of 2Mbps. The card will be available shortly, priced at $90.
