Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory
products, today announced it is releasing microSD High-Capacity (SDHC™) Flash
memory cards, starting with a 4GB microSDHC card in a Class 4 speed rating.
Providing speed and capacity increases in the smallest footprint available,
Kingston® microSDHC cards are perfect to meet the rising communication and
multimedia demands of mobile phones and digital devices able to take advantage
of the advanced expansion memory platform.

“As next-generation mobile phones promise cutting edge functionality in
ever-smaller form factors, demands increase on hardware to deliver these
features, particularly in the area of expansion memory where storage and
read/write performance becomes greater,” said Dave Lee, Flash Memory Product
Manager, Asia Region, Kingston. “Kingston is following the natural progression
of mobile technology and we timed our microSDHC roll-out to be in step as the
need materializes,” added Lee.

The new microSDHC 4GB card, part number #: (SDC4/4GBFE) is the first offering in
the Kingston microSDHC product line. The format may emerge as the predominant
mobile memory standard as more handset manufacturers, including Blackberry, HTC,
LG, Motorola, and Nokia embrace it with new or planned microSDHC-compatible
mobile phones.

Concurrent with the release of the 4GB card, Kingston is launching an adapter
pack (mini- and full-size SD), part number #: (SDC4/4GB+2ADP) to help consumers
optimize using their microSDHC cards with PCs and other digital devices.

Able to hold more than 2,000 images, 1,000 digital music tracks or 8 hours of
MPEG4 video, the Kingston 4GB microSDHC card surpasses capacities beyond the 2GB
threshold of the original microSD card format. While identical in physical size
to the original microSD card, microSDHC is compatible with microSDHC host
devices only and not backward compatible with standard microSD-enabled devices
or readers.

Backed by a lifetime warranty and free technical support, Kingston microSDHC
Flash memory cards are available through distributors, resellers, and retailers.
