SanDisk Corp. announced that Kyocera Wireless, a manufacturer of CDMA wireless phones and devices, will bundle a SanDisk TransFlash memory card with the new Kyocera Slider Remix KX5 mobile phone. The mobile phone is a full-featured handset that incorporates a high-resolution digital camera and music playback functions as well as other digital entertainment features.

The SD Card Association (SDA), an industry-standards setting organization for the SD card and its applications, recently adopted TransFlash as the new storage card format for handsets and renamed it the microSD card. microSD cards are fully compatible with TransFlash cards and will be fully supported by Kyocera.

Wes Brewer, VP of retail products at SanDisk, stated, "As more phones offer mobile entertainment and multimedia features, removable flash memory is a suitable way for consumers to store and transfer their information, digital images and compressed music files. With its unique combination of small size and high capacity, TransFlash cards have opened the way for sleek, highly functional, multimedia phones like the KX5."
