Sony 32GB Memory Sticks
Sony today announced the upcoming release of the largest capacity flash-based media storage cards in its recordable media range, with the 32GB PRO-HG Duo HX card and a 32GB PRO Duo card, both of which double the capacity of the current products. The former is made to work with Sony's Handycam camcorders, Alpha DSLRs and Cyber-shot compact cameras. The card has a 20MBps peak read speed and 15MBps peak write speed, or about three times faster than Sony's PRO Duo media card.
The PRO Duo Memory Stick is meant for more common, all-around uses, with lower, though unspecified transfer speeds. It also doubles the capacity of the currently available PRO Duo Memory Stick in Sony's range.
The 32GB PRO-HG Duo HX Memory Stick and 32GB PRO Duo Memory Stick will cost $249 and $200 when they launch at the end of September.
