Users accustomed to removing the memory card from one of their consumer electronic devices and plugging it into another will soon be able to do the same with mobile phones from Nokia Corp.
Under a licensing agreement announced Tuesday, the world's largest maker of mobile phones will support the use of Secure Digital (SD) memory cards in its handsets, in addition to its existing support of MultiMediaCards (MMC).
Nokia's decision to embrace the SD card is linked to the growing popularity of this type of flash memory technology in the consumer electronic sector, according to Timo Poikolainen, vice president of technology marketing at Nokia in Espoo, Finland.
