Toshiba Corp. and Toshiba America Electronic Components Inc. (TAEC) have expanded their line-up of large capacity miniSD memory cards with the introduction of a 2GB capacity card.

The SD memory card is a flash memory storage device designed to meet the converging security, capacity, ergonomic and performance requirements of emerging audio, video, data and multimedia consumer electronics markets. The SD Memory Card was jointly developed by Toshiba Corp., SanDisk Corp. and Matsushita Electric Industrial Co. Ltd.

Key features of the card include 2GB storage capacity suited ideal for mobile phones with megapixel cameras and music player functions that can to store up to 35 hours of music, maximum writing speed of approximately 5MBps and CPRM advanced copyright protection function.

"As mobile phones increasingly offer high-resolution cameras and support for digital music, demand is growing for a small, versatile, high capacity storage device for images and music. For the growing percentage of cell phones equipped with a miniSD Card slot, this card addresses these requirements," said Brian Kumagai, business development manager, NAND Flash, for TAEC.

The Toshiba 2GB miniSD memory card will be available in June 2006 priced at Rs.4,961.65 ($109.99).
