Kingston USB, SD cards to carry movies
Kingston and Paramount unveiled an unusual deal today that will see the latter's movies made available on SD cards and USB flash drives. The partners haven't detailed the formats involved but say the movies will be available both in bundles as well as individually. Neither company has committed to a release date.
The gesture is one of the few commitments to providing movies on non-optical storage and is considered a means of spreading video to systems that don't have Blu-ray or DVD drives, such as netbooks or handhelds. Standard definition movies are most likely as these can usually fit into 2GB or less of storage.
