The 1 GB SanDisk Ultra II SD Plus card announced earlier this year is now in stores.
This card works in any SD slot, but also can be used as a high-speed USB 2.0 flash drive.
“Now, to transfer data, images, audio, or video between computers, digital cameras and other electronic devices, you don’t need a card reader, cables or card adapters. Just flip the card to engage the USB connector and simply plug the Ultra II SD PLUS into any USB port. And the card also features an LED that blinks when data transfer is taking place to indicate that the card is being used as a USB flash drive,” said Tanya Chuang, SanDisk retail product marketing manager.
This card will offer write speeds of up to 9 MB/sec. and read speeds of 10 MB/sec.
Pricing and Availability
The 1 GB SanDisk Ultra II SD Plus card is available now from the Circuit City web site for $140, which is $10 off the suggested price.
Still, according to Shopper.com, this card will soon be available from several other stores for lower prices, one as low as $117.
Shopper.com also indicates that a 512 MB version of this card will also be available soon, with prices ranging from $70 to $90.
