  • 09 October, 2007 09:37

<p>Faster speed, greater storage capacity of 4GB microSDHC format helps wireless consumers optimise content and data in an increasingly complex mobile world</p>
<p>Sydney, Australia – 8 October 2007 –Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced it is releasing microSD High-Capacity (SDHC) flash memory cards, starting with a 4GB microSDHC card in a Class 4 speed rating. Providing speed and capacity increases in the smallest footprint available, Kingston microSDHC cards are perfect to meet the rising communication and multimedia demands of mobile phones and digital devices able to take advantage of the advanced expansion memory platform.</p>
<p>“As next-generation mobile phones promise cutting edge functionality in ever-smaller form factors, demands increase on hardware to deliver these features, particularly in the area of expansion memory where storage and read/write performance becomes greater,” said Vaughan Nankivell, regional manager, Australia/New Zealand, Kingston. “Kingston is following the natural progression of mobile technology and we timed our microSDHC roll-out to be in step as the need materialises,” added Nankivell.</p>
<p>The new microSDHC 4GB card, part number #: (SDC4/4GBFE) is the first offering in the Kingston microSDHC product line. The format may emerge as the predominant mobile memory standard as more handset manufacturers, including Blackberry, HTC, LG, Motorola, and Nokia embrace it with new or planned microSDHC-compatible mobile phones.</p>
<p>Concurrent with the release of the 4GB card, Kingston is launching an adapter pack (mini- and full-size SD), part number #: (SDC4/4GB+2ADP) to help consumers optimise using their microSDHC cards with PCs and other digital devices.</p>
<p>Able to hold more than 2,000 images, 1,000 digital music tracks or 8 hours of MPEG4 video, the Kingston 4GB microSDHC card surpasses capacities beyond the 2GB threshold of the original microSD card format. While identical in physical size to the original microSD card, microSDHC is compatible with microSDHC host devices only and not backward compatible with standard microSD-enabled devices or readers.</p>

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
