Sony to Add ROM Version of Memory Stick

Sony Corp. announced its plan to add a ROM version to the IC memory card “Memory Stick,” which it has been promoting.

Sony will introduce a trial product in June, and aims to be ready for orders in July.

The ROM version will have complete compatibility with Memory Stick, and capacities ranging from 8MB to 32MB.

This Memory Stick ROM (tentative name) is designed as a content-distributing media such as for music alert for cellular phones and video games. Sony said it also can be used for databases, which should not be altered, and for software for demonstration purposes.

Moreover, by adopting the mask ROM process, it is possible to commercialize the product at a lower price, according to Sony.

Sony said it would be possible to launch a Memory Stick ROM with content within 2001.
