“As sleeker, more sophisticated mobile phones, PDAs and MP3 players offer digital imaging, music, video, mobile TV and games, the need for higher data transfer rates, increased storage and smaller form factor expansion memory becomes greater,” said Jean Wong, Flash memory product manager, Kingston. “Kingston is ready with miniSDHC memory to support the popular but storage-hungry advanced features of these next generation digital devices,” continued Wong.

Able to hold more than 2,000 images, 750 digital music tracks or 4.5 hours of MPEG4 video, the Kingston 4GB miniSDHC card format surpasses capacities beyond the 2GB threshold of the original miniSD card format. Each speed class designation reflects the minimum sustained data transfer rate (DTR) of megabytes per second (MB/s). For example, a Class 2 SDHC card has a minimum DTR of 2MB/sec, while a Class 6 SDHC card has a minimum DTR of 6MB/sec. Though identical in physical size, the miniSDHC is compatible with miniSDHC host devices only and not backward-compatible with standard miniSD-enabled devices or readers.
