Comdex – Pretec to release up to 3GB Compact Flash cards

by Reads (3,089)

Pretec has announced plans to release a 1.5, 2 and 3 GB compact flash card early next year. This announcement makes the Pretec cards the largest capacity Storage cards yet.

All three versions are scheduled for production in 2003. Can’t wait? You can pick up the 3GB card in sample quantities before this year is out for $2499. What’s that? You want two!

Expensive yes! Expansive yes! 3GB in this form factor is amazing, even if the price is high. As with all electronics, once it gets into production, the price will fall substantially. But how will the adoption be? Is the 1GB version or IBM’s 1GB microdrive enough for you? Where does the price point have to be for you to purchase?
