SanDisk Introduces 4 GB Memory Stick Micro Card

The venerable Memory Stick format has seen its share of increasing storage size with SanDisk’s recent announcement of a 4 GB Memory Stick Micro memory card, which will be compatible with Sony Ericsson’s latest generation of multimedia and mobile handsets.

Called the M2, it will measure 0.59 inches long by 0.49 inches wide by 0.05 inches high, or 15 mm x 12.5 mm x 1.2 mm, making it the second smallest flash memory media in the world, behind the microSD format.

The SanDisk M2 card line has been designed for use with mobile handsets that have an M2 slot or use the Memory Stick PRO Duo adapter. M2 cards will be fully backward compatible with all digital cameras and hand-held game players that have a Memory Stick slot.

Although no pricing has been determined yet, the M2 card will be shipping to OEMs in May. It will be available in retail stores later in the year.
