SanDisk Expands Product Line And Leads In Capacity By Manufacturing
Memory Card Format Pioneered By Sony and SanDisk
MS PRO Duo cards are roughly half the size of MS PRO and are intended for use in smaller sized digital devices. An adapter is included with every MS PRO Duo card enabling versatility (or usage) with all MS PRO compatible devices.
Memory Stick PRO cards feature advanced capabilities that will, when combined with devices that are optimized for the Memory Stick PRO format, ensure greater reliability by preventing data loss due to sudden power loss or accidental removal of media while recording or transferring files. Memory Stick PRO media can be safely removed during a file transfer process without the risk of damaging the file structure on the media.
Memory Stick PRO-enabled devices can capture and play back DVD-quality video in real time as well as store multiple hours of CD-quality music, high-resolution digital images and other applications that require high performance and large capacities.
SanDisk Memory Stick PRO cards are expected to be available this month with capacities that range from 128MB to 2 gigabytes and suggested list prices ranging from $59.99 to $999.99.
SanDisk-manufactured Memory Stick PRO Duo cards are expected to be available Q2 2004 at a suggested list price of $64.99 and $224.99 for the 128MB and 512MB capacities respectively (Memory Stick PRO adapter included).
