With growing sales of high-resolution digital cameras, video camcorders and
other electronic devices that require more memory and speed, SanDisk today
announced a 2GB Memory Stick PRO Duo(TM) flash storage card and a new Memory
Stick PRO Duo family in the SanDisk Ultra® II line. The latest Memory Stick
offerings, which are expected to ship this spring, give SanDisk the world’s
first 2GB Memory Stick PRO Duo cards. That capacity will be available in both
the existing Standard line and the new SanDisk Ultra II Memory Stick PRO Duo
line, which provides faster read and write speeds for devices that can utilize
them.

SanDisk also introduced the SanDisk Ultra(TM) II SD(TM) PLUS, an innovative
SD flash memory card with built-in USB connectivity. The new card, which works
seamlessly in any SD card slot, also can be used as a high-speed USB 2.0 flash
drive. The new dual-functionality device has been added to the SanDisk Ultra II
product line, a family of high-performance flash memory cards with write speeds
of 9MB per second and read speeds of 10MB/sec.

SanDisk Ultra II Memory Stick PRO Duo

The new SanDisk Ultra II Memory Stick PRO Duo family is being offered in three
capacities: 512 megabytes (MB), 1GB and 2GB. Suggested retail prices are
$ 119.99, $ 209.99 and $ 479.99. These cards have minimum write and read speeds of
10MB per second. The Ultra II line is designed for digital still cameras that
have resolutions of 5 megapixels and higher, including "prosumer" cameras that
average 6 to 8 megapixels. Users can photograph moving objects more easily,
although image quality depends on the make, model and speed capabilities of each
camera.

Memory Stick PRO Duo Standard

Designed for a wide range of electronic devices, many of them recently
introduced by Sony and other companies, the SanDisk Memory Stick PRO Duo
Standard line is ideal for memory-intensive use, and is offered in capacities of
128MB, 256MB, 512MB, 1GB and, now, 2GB. Products that have Memory Stick PRO Duo
slots include portable game and multimedia systems (such as the new Sony PSP),
mobile phones, digital camcorders, MP3 players, desktop PCs and laptops and
printers. Suggested retail price of the new Standard 2GB Memory Stick PRO Duo is
$ 359.99, which includes a Memory Stick adapter that makes it compatible with all
Memory Stick PRO devices.

SanDisk Ultra II SD PLUS

The Ultra II SD PLUS, which SanDisk expects will start shipping to stores in
April, initially will be available in two capacities — 512MB and 1GB. The 512MB
card will have a suggested retail price of $ 109.99 and the 1GB version will
carry a suggested price of $ 149.99. The Ultra II SD PLUS is targeted primarily
at the professional digital camera and prosumer market where 4 mega-pixel or
higher resolution digital cameras are requiring significantly faster flash
memory film cards. The Ultra II product line, which also includes CompactFlash®
and Memory Stick PRO(TM) card formats, allows photographers to quickly capture
high-resolution images and take advantage of the advanced features available
today in high mega-pixel digital cameras.
