In addition, three Secure Digital (SD) Flash Memory card packs join the MobileLite launch. A 1GB standard SD card combo pack is available right away and 1GB microSD and 2GB SD bundles will be available later this quarter.

Wendy Lecot, Flash marketing manager, Kingston said, “There are so many Flash memory card formats currently used by different digital devices that the Kingston MobileLite will be a welcome tool that simplifies managing digital content between one’s cell phone, digital camera, PC and MP3 player.” Lecot added, “With nine different card reading options, MobileLite makes moving and accessing music, video, image and data files between cards and devices quick and easy—via one convenient reader.”
