SanDisk and Sony launch Memory Stick Micro

Posted on Friday, Sep 30 2005 @ 10:33 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
It's hard to believe but SanDisk and Sony today announced the SanDisk Memory Stick Micro memory card. This ultra-small memory stick is only one-quarter the size of Sony's Memory Stick Pro DUO and is only 1.2mm thick.

The media's edges are slotted lengthwise to allow for more slim-line designed connectors to reduce space in host devices. As dual-voltage media, Memory Stick Micro supports devices operating at 3.3 volts and 1.8 volts.

Memory Stick Micro is designed as an externally removable media with a controlled eject function to prevent users losing the media. Users will be able to insert Memory Stick Micro into an adapter for exchanging data to a Memory Stick PRO compatible product.

The Memory Stick Micro will be used for cell phones and other portable devices and will be made available in the first half of 2006.
