SanDisk has unveiled an 8GB Memory Stick Micro flash memory card for use with mobile phones, which it says is the largest capacity of its kind on offer in the world.
The company is now shipping the 8GB cards to phone manufacturers and mobile network operators for testing and evaluation, with the product being primarily used in Sony Ericsson mobile phones.
“With the addition of an 8GB SanDisk M2 card, consumers will instantly have the same amount of storage as the largest capacity iPhone,” said SanDisk’s Jeff Kost.
“Furthermore, removable cards make it easy to share content you create with friends, ‘sideload’ content and files from a computer and have virtually unlimited storage by simply purchasing more cards.”
The 8GB card, which was announced at the IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin, is due for retail release and available to phone manufacturers in the last quarter of this year.
Pricing is yet to be announced.
