Toshiba Corp has announced, with Toshiba America Electronic Components Inc (TAEC), that it has expanded its line of small-format, high-speed, high-capacity memory cards with the launch of a 4-Gbyte (GB) microSDHC card. The addition of the card extends Toshiba's comprehensive range of microSDHC cards -- memory cards for mobile phone applications -- from 256-Mbyte (MB) up to 4GB.

Toshiba's 4GB microSDHC card meets SD memory card standard Ver 2, the SDHC card standard for SD products with a capacity of over 2GB. The card is designed for use in dedicated microSDHC slots, but can also be used in standard SDHC card slots in an adapter.

The market for high density memory cards is expected to grow alongside increasing demand for digital equipment, such as mobile phones that can record and display video and high resolution images. Toshiba will continue to expand and upgrade its SDHC and SD Memory Card series to meet the growing demand for high-speed, high-capacity products.

The new cards will be available worldwide beginning in July.
