Toshiba To Launch 2GB miniSD Memory Card For Cell Phones

Toshiba today announced an expanded line-up of large capacity miniSD memory cards with the introduction of a 2GB capacity card. The new Toshiba-branded miniSD will be launched in the world market in mid June 2006.

The miniSD card is much smaller than a standard SD memory card but delivers increasingly large capacity. Its primary application is in mobile devices with miniSD slots, but it can also be used in standard SD slots with an adapter.

As mobile phones increasingly offer high-resolution cameras and support for digital music, demand is growing for a small, versatile, high capacity storage device that can handle images and music.

With the addition of the new 2GB miniSD card, Toshiba will reinforce a product line-up that already extends up to 1GB.
