Xmultiple SQ Cards

Not satisfied with traditional flash memory, Xmultiple today revealed the SQ card, a new format that aims to fix the flaws of earlier formats. Speed is the greatest improvement, the company boats. Every SQ model eliminates the typically slow transfer rates of flash. A mid-range 1GB card can read data at 24MB/sec and write at 12MB/sec, several times faster than SD or similiar formats; top cards can peak at 60MB. The design is also innovative, te company adds. Since each card is perfectly square and has a connector on each side, owners never have to worry about which end to use.

The SQ cards will be available in several capacities, ranging from a base 32MB card that sells for $18 to a 4GB card for $80. Each card is bundled with a USB 2 reader that can either be used to transfer files with most any computer and can also be used as a ReadyBoost flash cache for Vista. Exact shipping timeframes are unknown. [via Gearlog]
