Kingston Mobility Kit

Kingston today catered to the steadily growing ranks of music phones listeners through a new Mobility Kit. While many phones and some portable media players include a microSD card for storage but lack an easy way to sideload music, the kit packs both the storage itself, two adapter cards for mini and full-size SD slots, and a compact USB reader that connects the microSD card to any computer with a free port. The reader even includes its own keychain so users can carry the reader and its storage with them on a trip, Kingston says.

A model of the kit with a 1GB microSD card and a black reader should be in shops now for $27. A 2GB version of the Mobility Kit with a stylized red reader is set to arrive soon but hasn't received either official pricing or a ship date. The reader is treated as mass storage and works with any Mac or Windows PC.
