SanDisk caters micro and mini-SD for Verizon

SanDisk, the world’s largest supplier of flash data storage card products, has teamed with up Verizon Wireless, the nation’s second largest mobile provider, to address the predicted high demand for mobile storage with the coming of Verizon’s V CAST Music service. Many will be looking to download content and will need high capacity, high-reliability storage for their mobile phones, and who better to turn to than SanDisk.

A microSD card (formerly known as TransFlash) will hit Verizon stores with a capacity of 1GB, storing up to 480 songs downloaded from the V CAST service, twice as big as was previously available. SanDisk’s microSD will come with a standard SD adapter, so you can connect it to your regular card reader on your home PC or MAC. MSRP on the 1GB microSD is $119.99 USD. It’ll fit in nicely with the soon-to-be-launched Samsung a950.

Previously only available up to 1GB, SanDisk is now launching a 2GB miniSD card for $199.99 USD, aimed at unparalleled storage of photos, music, and video on mobile phones. Look to fit that into the new LG VX8100 to be offered through Verizon.
