<p><em>Larger Capacity Cards Offer More Flexibility to Expand Digital Content for

<strong>Sydney, Australia</strong> – <strong>March 4, 2009</strong> - Kingston
Digital, Inc., the Flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, Inc.,
today announced it is releasing a 16GB microSDHC Flash memory card for use in
mobile phones. The larger capacity card offers greater storage options for the
latest mobile phones and other digital devices and joins the microSDHC card family

“The increased functionality of the latest mobile phones has helped fuel
and raise consumers’ appetites for more digital content,” said Vaughan
Nankivell, Regional Manager- Australia and New Zealand for Kingston Technology.

of limited internal handset or device memory and allows users to store more photos,
songs, games and videos.”<br/>

images from a 5MP cameraphone**, or up to 16 hours of video***, offering the most

storage slot. Newer handset models from manufacturers such as LG, Motorola, Nokia,
RIM and Sony Ericsson support 16GB external storage.<br/>
