Pretec 8GB SD Card

One of the most significant advantages of CompactFlash, storage capacity, is quickly eroding in light of rapidly improving memory production. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the announcement of a new 8GB SD card from Pretec. Using the new SD 2.0 standard (also known as SDHC), the new card offers double the capacity of the original SD card format, which is limited to a maximum of 4GB by design. SD 2.0 is not backwards compatible with earlier hardware, though Pretec plans to introduce a tool named SD-Tuner to help users make the transition. The 8GB card is sampling now and will be available in the last quarter of the year for $299.
