Sandisk has introduced a 4GB SD High Capacity (SDHC) card. It’s rated Class 2 for speed and performance and can store around than 2,000 high-resolution images, more than 1,000 digital music tracks or up to 8 hours of MPEG 4 video.
The new cards are designed for the next generation of portable devices that will demand higher storage for our ever-increasing need to carry round our entire media collection. Next generation is the key here – although they look like existing SD cards, the SDHC cards, which could eventually be available with capacities up to 32GB, will only work with devices that are SDHC compatible – which are currently very thin in the ground.
If you want one, they’re avaialble now, priced around $200 (around £110).
