PretecDuring our CeBIT 2003 report we brought you the news from Pretec to bring a huge high-capacity storage card on the market. After this announcement we were told that the initial shipping price would be around $7999. Some days later SanDisk introduced their 4GB type I CompactFlash card with a stunning price tag of $1000. There will be no discussion which product will be more realistic, what a price difference! Yesterday we got information from Pretec that the 6GB CF type II card will be available by the end of this year. The price has been changed into $7499, a little bit of a disappointment. To make things more exciting, Pretec is planning to demonstrate a 12GB CF type II card late next year. I am curious.. what price tag will this baby get?
Pretec and the story of 6GB CompactFlash type II Pretec has been shipping 3GB CF card since 2002, which is the highest capacity in the world up until now. 6GB CF card will start sampling next month at US$7499 and mass delivery by the end of this year. Pretec 12GB CF card is planned for demonstration by the 2nd half of next year. Pretec Platinum CF Card is constructed with precision mechanics and full metal protection and will be introduced for the first time to the consumer market from 128MB to 6GB. It is originated from the military and industrial grade CF card technology that Pretec pioneered a few years ago, the bending test conducted by reputable institute proves that Pretec Platinum CF card is 3 times better than regular plastic CF card in the market. Pretec also today announced the availability of Secure CF card, the 1st in the world to adopt CF security command enabling users to protect their confidential data through specific application software; the availability of ruggedized CF card with optional security CF card makes Pretec CF card to be the most reliable CF card in the world. The sustained read speed of 8MB/sec and write speed of 7MB/sec makes Pretec 6GB CF card one of the fastest in the world; as the search for speed is never ending, Pretec will keep launching higher speed CF card in the coming quarters.
