Toshiba launches 512MB flash card

The removable storage card, which is aimed at the reseller market, complements Toshiba's existing line-up of storage devices, which include the 128MB SmartMedia card. The new CompactFlash card uses Toshiba's 0.16 micron technology, which the company has been using since the fourth quarter of 2000, Toshiba said in a statement.

The new card can be used in devices including digital still and video cameras, audio players, PDAs (personal digital assistants) and other devices that currently use CompactFlash cards.

As the popularity of devices such as MP3 players and digital video cameras increases, users want more space to store music, photos and other data, and CompactFlash cards have attracted attention because of their small size.

The 512MB card has a write speed of up to 3.2MBs per second, and a read speed of up to 5.4MBs per second, the company said in a statement.

The CompactFlash card is currently available to resellers, who will use the cards in their own branded devices, for prices starting at $US499 each in manufacturer quantities.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
