4GB microSDHC media
Toshiba on Tuesday expanded its line of small-format, high-speed, high-capacity memory cards with the launch of a 4GB microSDHC card. The addition of the new card extends Toshiba's range of microSDHC cards for mobile phone applications; it now includes capacities ranging from 256MB up to 4GB. Toshiba's 4GB microSDHC card meets SD memory card standard Ver. 2.00, the SD card standard for high-density SD products with a capacity of over 2GB (but is not backward compatible with standard SD Memory). The card is designed for use in dedicated microSDHC slots, but can also be used in standard SDHC card slots via a standard adapter. The new card delivers a maximum write speed of 6MB per second and are rated as "Class 4" SD Speed Class for guaranteed sustained data writes of 4MB/sec or more. They will be available worldwide starting in July, according to the company.
