SanDisk Launches World's Most Capacious Flash Storage Phone

Flash memory and storage device provider SanDisk said Sept. 29 that it will soon bring to market the world's largest removable storage capacity for mobile phones—16GB MicroSDHC (SD High Capacity) and Memory Stick Micro mobile memory cards. Best Buy Mobile and Verizon Wireless stores will be the first major retail outlets in the United States to carry the 16GB-capacity cards, SanDisk said. Stores will have them on shelves beginning in October and November.

SanDisk, the object of a recent proposed buyout by Samsung—with Japan's Toshiba also being a possible suitor—said the new memory cards also can be utilized in several other applications besides mobile phones. They can be put to work in video cameras, GPS receivers or MP3 players with MicroSD slots, such as SanDisk's Sansa players.
