SanDisk’s 8GB M2 card is the largest M2 card in the world and will allow users to store more than 2000 digital songs, over 5000 digital photos, or more than five hours of MPEG4 videos. SanDisk says the cards will be available in Q4 2007 but that pricing has not yet been determined.
"With the addition of an 8GB SanDisk M2 card, consumers will instantly have the same amount of storage as the largest capacity iPhone," said Jeff Kost, senior vice president and general manager of the Mobile Consumer Solutions division at SanDisk. "Furthermore, removable cards make it easy to share content you create with friends, 'sideload' content and files from a computer and have virtually unlimited storage by simply purchasing more cards. SanDisk is enabling people to get more out of their phones than ever before."
