Sandisk Announces 8GB SDHC Card

During the CeBIT show in Germany last week, Sandisk announced an 8GB SDHC card. Since not everyone has an SDHC card reader yet, they’ll be bundling their MicroMate USB 2.0 reader along with the card.

The new 8GB card from Sandisk is a Class 2 device, which guarantees a minimum data transfer rate of 2MB/second.
