Kingston Technology today announced the launch of 1GB microSD
expansion memory cards to further enhance its growing line of mobile memory
solutions. The increased capacity and format is essential for users of current
and next-generation multifunction mobile phones that require more memory to
support advanced features including MP3 players, video, higher-resolution cameras
and mobile gaming.

“The microSD form factor is becoming increasingly popular
as new mobile phone handsets reduce in size and increase in functionality,”
said Scott Chen, Vice President, APAC Business Development, Kingston. “With
new 1GB capacities, consumers can efficiently manage more — from address
books, photos and data files to multiple ringtones, video, music and beyond,”
continued Chen.

Kingston microSD cards ship bundled with a Secure Digital
(SD) adapter for use as a full-size SD card. To protect against accidental data
loss, the adapter has a built-in write-protect switch. The new 1GB capacity
card joins the 512MB and 256MB cards. Larger capacities will continue to follow
as mobile device and content needs dictate. As like all Kingston Memory products,
consumers enjoy a lifetime warranty.
