Samsung to offer branded memory cards in Taiwan

Posted in Samsung by Shane McGlaun on October 16th, 2009

samsung-logo-sb1Memory cards are pretty much a commodity market today. They are all about the same and rarely are there any differences between brands. Samsung has decided to enter into memory card market in Taiwan with its own line of branded memory cards.

I point out that the cards are branded because Samsung has been manufacturing memory cards as white label products for other manufacturers to sell under their own brand. Samsung will sell SD, microSD, and CF cards with capacities of 4GB, 8GB, and 16GB.

USB cable with built-in SD card reader

USB cable with built-in SD card readerSo simple a solution, that it’s brilliant. Why we have never seen it before now, I have no idea. This mini-USB cable with an inline SD card reader from Brando combines the USB cable and the SD card. In doing so, it wins over our hearts, our minds and various other bodily orifices. The $12 cable will help you transfer files and photos from the SD card and will also assist you in charging your portable devices via USB.

Inserting an SD card will disable transfers from whichever device is hooked up to the mini-USB end to make way for SD card transfers, but the cable will keep charging the device. Once the card is removed, you’ll again be able to shuttle files between point A and point B.

Kingston 16GB microSDHC CardOne of the things I want most on my iPhone is expandable memory. Most smartphones include a microSD card slot that allows you to add more storage for music, images, and other files as you need to. Phones that are compatible with microSDHC cards can offer even more storage capacity with a single small card.

Kingston has announced a new microSDHC card that offers 16GB of storage capacity. According to Kingston, that is enough storage for more than 3,000 songs, over 9,000 images at 5-megapixel resolution and more than 16 hours of video.

Nintendo has a storage solution: Load from the SD slot

Nintendo has a storage solution: Load from the SD slotNintendo has come up with a solution to the number one issue that Wii gamers face. Storage. And yes the solution is obvious. During the Japan fall press conference they announced that in the spring of 2009, gamers can expect the ability to load and play software directly from an SD card in your SD slot, as well as download items directly to the SD card. There’s a 2GB maximum, so you’ll want to stock up on 2GB SD cards. I guess it’s better then another peripheral to clutter up our lives.

Lexar announces Shoot-n-Sync Wi-Fi SD card

Lexar Shoot-n-Sync SD CardOne of the things I dislike most about taking pictures is having to remove the memory card form my camera each time and load it into my card reader. I could directly connect the camera via USB, but I tend to forget to turn it off after I transfer pics so the battery is dead when I want to use the camera next time.

Lexar has a new SD memory card called the Shoot-n-Sync that will automatically upload images to my computer when in range of my wireless network. If the card sounds a lot like the Eye-Fi we have talked about before, it’s because it uses Eye-fi technology.
