SanDisk ships 8GB cards
SanDisk has begun shipping its 8GB microSDHC and M2 flash memory cards. The company is aiming the new cards squarely at users with mobile phones that accept memory, and launching a "Wake Up Your Phone" campaign to increase awareness of the sometimes overlooked capability. As part of the campaign, SanDisk has teamed up with festival and event producers Guerilla Union (Rock the Bells, Paid Dues) for the "Sunset Strip Block Party," an event incorporating exclusive headline performances from various artists on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles, Calif today, Friday the 26. Performances include Linkin Park, Common, The Crystal Method, Cut Chemist (visual performance) and Z-Trip. The 8GB microSDHC an M2 cards are now available in major retail outlets worldwide with suggested retail prices of $140 and $150 respectively.
