Kingston 4GB miniSDHC card
Expanding its line of Secure Digital High-Capacity (SDHC) memory cards, Kingston has introduced a 4GB miniSDHC card that is available in Class 2, 4, and 6 speed ratings. The high capacity and fast speed of the card makes it ideal for supporting new, smaller-profile multifunction phones, PDAs, and digital devices like MP3 players.

Able to hold more than 2,000 images, 750 digital music tracks or 4.5 hours of MPEG4 video, the miniSDHC card measures 21.5mm x 20.0mm x 1.4mm. Each speed class designation reflects the minimum sustained data transfer rate (DTR) of megabytes per second (MB/s). For example, a Class 2 SDHC card has a minimum DTR of 2MB/sec. Though identical in physical size, the miniSDHC is compatible with miniSDHC host devices only.

Backed by a lifetime warranty and free technical support, Kingston 4GB Class 2, Class 4, and Class 6 miniSDHC Flash memory cards are available at Rs. 2,800, Rs. 2,900 and Rs. 3,900 respectively.
