New SanDisk mobile SD gear

One of the few of today's announcements not directly involving phones is SanDisk's introduction of the microSD Multi SD Kit. The product helps solve one of the key problems of mobile devices, which is the proliferation of three different SD formats: miniSD, microSD, and standard SD. While the only storage included is a single microSD card, the kit also bundles adapters for miniSD and regular SD slots, which can fit into phones, cameras, and other electronics. Kits will ship to the US in 512MB, 1GB and 2GB sizes starting in March.

Coming separately will be the company's first 4GB microSDHC card, which can theoretically hold up to 1,000 songs, 2,000 "high-resolution" pictures, or eight hours of MPEG-4 video. Critically, the card is not compatible with the Multi SD Kit, and cannot be read unless a device specifically supports SDHC. Owners can, however, buy a Mobile Memory Kit that steps up microSDHC to miniSDHC or regular SDHC. The release of the microSDHC card is currently only set for sometime in 2007.
