SanDisk has announced plans to release a 128 MB CompactFlash card in its Shoot & Store line of low-cost digital memory cards. This will sell for just $20.
The Shoot & Store line is intended for digital cameras but many handhelds can make use of them, too.
While its often possible to find cards that are less expensive than the members of the Shoot & Store line, these almost always have to be bought online and usually require a rebate.
The Shoot & Store line, on the other hand, can be found in 20,000 major drug stores, supermarkets, convenience stores and other retail outlets in the United States, Australia and various other countries.
Shoot & Store cards are sold in CompactFlash, SD, xD, and Memory Stick formats. The least expensive of these, a 32 MB SD card, is just $10.
SanDisk’s new 128 MB CompactFlash card is scheduled to be available in March.
