Sony has announced that they will be bringing out five SD/SDHC memory cards, and three microSD/microSDHC memory cards – and yes, we’re not kidding. The company known for pushing its own memory standards will bring out the SD cards in 2GB, 4GB, 8GB, 16GB and 32GB capacity and microSD cards in 2GB, 4GB and 8GB capacity. Pricing ranges from $14.99 to $159.99 for the SD cards, and $14.99 to $44.99 for microSD cards. It also looks like that the pricing between the microSD cards will be the same (well, up to 8GB) to the SD equivalent.
Does this mean the death of the Memory Stick – not really. Sony’s head of consumer media, Shane Higby, has said that this will “complement” them.
