With higher resolution digital cameras and other digital devices demanding more and more storage capacity,
SanDisk Corp. has introduced what it says it the world’s highest capacity CompactFlash Type I card — a 1GB model. The new card makes its debut this month at the COMDEX trade show.
SanDisk senior VP Nelson Chan heralds the introduction of the new card as “a technological breakthrough” for his company, and suggested that the advent of the 1GB CF Type I card is an indication that flash technology will ultimately replace recording tapes and disks in future audio and video products.
The new 1GB CompactFlash Type I card is expected to go on sale in the first quarter of 2002 with a suggested retail price of less than US$800.
If you’re attending COMDEX and you want to visit with SanDisk, you can find them in Conference Room 10 at the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel.
