SanDiskSanDisk 1 Gigabyte xD-Picture Card introduction : SanDisk Corporation today doubled the capacity of its xD-Picture Card and introduced a one gigabyte (GB) version (Type M) of the popular flash memory card. The 1 Gigabyte xD-Picture Card announcement was made at the annual CeBIT show (Hannover - Germany) where SanDisk is demonstrating the new 1 gigabyte xD-Picture Cards. The announcement follows the introduction last month of 10 new, four megapixel and higher digital cameras by Olympus and Fujifilm that are fully compatible with the 1GB xD-Picture Card. Susan Park, SanDisk’s xD product marketing manager, said, "These new Olympus and Fujifilm digital cameras are all in the four-to-seven megapixel range."

"Consumers who buy the new xD-Picture Cards are going to benefit significantly by using high capacity flash storage cards. Higher megapixel cameras and video recording features typically require higher data storage capacities. The 1GB xD-Picture Card will ensure that consumers can take plenty of pictures and not worry about running out of memory capacity." For example, when used with a 5 mp. digital camera, a 1GB xD-Picture Card can capture and store approx. 800 images shot at the high quality setting.

SanDisk xD-Picture Card - Olympus and Fujifilm
Chris Chute, senior analyst at IDC market research, said, "As Fuji and Olympus continue to strongly support the xD-Picture Card for use in their digital cameras, we believe that the card ranks as a key format in the flash card family. Both companies have recently developed and introduced several new digital cameras that use the xD-Picture Card, and we believe that future Fuji and Olympus cameras presently under development also will be based on that card. With the on-going success of the xD-Picture Card, SanDisk should be able to pursue growing sales opportunities for the format."

SanDisk xD-Picture Card - Pricing and Availability
SanDisk is expected to start shipping the M Series, 1GB card in April at a suggested retail price of $139.99 in the U.S. (Pricing in other countries has not been determined.) The company now offers a complete line of xD-Picture Cards ranging from a 64-megabyte model, at a suggested retail price of $24.99, on up to the new 1GB card. The M series xD-Picture Cards, whose capacity can be increased to 8GB in the future, will be sold in SanDisk packaging under the Olympus and Fuji brand labels. The Type M cards will be so identified on the packaging. SanDisk products are sold worldwide at more than 100,000 retail outlets.
