(Auszug aus der Pressemitteilung)

Meridian, Idaho, and Glasgow, UK, 14th December, 2006 – Crucial Technology today announces the immediate availability of 512MB and 1GB microSD™ memory cards to round out its extensive line of flash memory solutions. Crucial’s new microSD cards are designed for use in today’s mobile devices, such as cellular phones with memory-hungry multimedia features like built-in music players and digital cameras. Crucial’s microSD cards are removable and reusable, not only allowing more memory-intensive files to be stored over and above the integrated memory capability, but also enabling files to be transferred to other devices.


Crucial’s microSD cards are shipped with a Secure Digital™ (SD) adapter, enabling the microSD card to be inserted into a variety of larger, SD-compatible devices, including digital cameras, handheld computers, and digital music players.

“Crucial’s new microSD card broadens our current flash memory product offering and allows our customers to enjoy the continued growth of the mobile lifestyle”, said Crucial Technology Product Manager Ben Thiel. “The extra storage our microSD cards provide, and their versatile usability, when combined with the standard SD adapter, enables users to share their music files or video clips with friends and then display them on their computers.”

The microSD card is the smallest memory card with worldwide availability, measuring about 38 percent of the area size of miniSD and 21 percent of the area size of a standard SD card.
