SanDisk SD USB
Normally the excitement surrounding a new flash memory card is inversely proportional to the increase in size over the prior release. The only thing delivering a smaller thrill quotient might be news of a 1-gig floppy. Without increasing the capacity or reducing the price, San Disk managed to get my attention at CES with the introduction of a new SD card.
The latest postage stamp sized gem from SanDisk looks like a normal flash card with a convenient hinge revealing a convenient USB connector.
No need to worry whether or not you have access to a card reader – just expose the connector and insert in any USB slot for access to all the data. No word on pricing yet (announcement expected in February), but this transforming form factor will remain competitive with other SD media at sizes up to 1GB.
