SanDisk introduces three new Single Slot card readers
We have visited the booth from SanDisk during the day for the press, one day before the CeBIT 2003 actually started, and took a glimpse of the new single card readers SanDisk are introducing. The ImageMate card readers will support a variety of popular flash memory cards. The three new ImageMate models, all with hi-speed USB 2.0 connectivity, were introduced at the CeBIT 2003 event where SanDisk is demonstrating several new products in Hall 21, booth B24. One single slot readers (SDDR-91) accepts CompactFlash type I and type II cards along with the IBM Microdrive cards. The second (SDDR-93) has a slot for Secure Digital and MultiMedia cards and the third model (SDDR-97) works with the Memory Stick and Memory Stick Pro cards. The latter model is the first card reader in the industry for both the Memory Stick and Memory Stick Pro. The new single slot readers have a suggested retail price of $19.99 and will be available early in the second quarter at many of the 50,000 store worldwide where SanDisk branded products are sold.

According to Eric Bone, SanDisk products marketing manager, extend these new readers, which now comprise the entry-level part of the card reader line from SanDisk, the award-winning industrial design established by SanDisk' s ImageMate 6-in-1 memory card reader and the popular Cruzer portable storage device. SanDisk thinks consumers will appreciate the compactness, great value and high performance of the single slot readers. And for those who want the ultimate in card readers the 6-in-1 reader is still the product to buy.

Most card readers today have USB 1.1 technology that has the slower data transfer rate of 12 megabits per second (Mbps). With the hi-speed USB 2.0, SanDisk's new single slot readers are capable of data transfer rates of up to 480Mbps. The new readers, about the size of a deck of cards, are small enough to easily fit in a purse or briefcase. They also include a standard, detachable USB cable. All SanDisk ImageMate readers are true "plug and play" due to Mass Storage Class (MSC) compliance when used with Windows ME, 2000, XP, Mac OS 9.2.1+ and Mac OS 10.1.2+. A driver is also included for Windows 98SE support
