Maxell jumps into removable flash memory

Maxell Flash Memory Cards

Best known for its optical storage, Maxell today entered the realm of flash memory with its first four products in the category. The first offerings are headlined by a USB flash drive that, in an uncommon turn, has its own microSDHC card reader to support memory from phones and other small handhelds without giving up permanent storage of its own. A microSDHC card line is also coming from Maxell itself.

Camera and netbook owners are in turn supported by CompactFlash and full SDHC cards, both of which are labeled as high speed but haven't received detailed specifications. All four flash devices come in capacities between 2GB and 16GB, but pricing and availability haven't been outlined.
