SanDisk Corp. introduced at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas the world's smallest flash memory card with capacity of 1GB, designed to meet consumers demand for Verizon Wireless' new V CAST Music service. The microSD card, previously known as TransFlash, allows users to store up to 32 hours of WMA-compressed music, which means about 480 songs. The card comes with an adapter allowing it to be used in a standard SD slot. The new card is expected to be available through Verizon Wireless next month for the price of $119.99. In addition to the microSD card, SanDisk Corp. announced a new 2GB miniSD card in order to satisfy the increasing consumers' requirements for accessing photos, music and video on their phones. The suggested retail price for the 2GB miniSD card is $199.99.
