Kingston Technology Co. Inc. has added an 8Gbyte microSD High-Capacity (SDHC) flash memory card (SDC4/8GB) to its mobile memory storage line.

The 8Gbyte microSDHC card offers greater storage options to the latest mobile phones and digital devices in the smallest footprint available.

Kingston's 8Gbyte microSDHC card can store more than 1,500 digital songs, more than 4,000 images from a 5Mpixel cameraphone, or up to 8hrs of video, surpassing storage limits on mobile phones without flash memory card slots.

The microSDHC format is emerging as the predominant mobile memory standard as more handset manufacturers, including HTC, LG, Motorola, Nokia, RIM and Samsung, embrace it with compatible mobile phones. Recent models tested with the new Kingston 8Gbyte microSDHC card include the BlackBerry Pearl 8120; the LG evV2 (VX9100) and Voyager (VX10000); as well as the Samsung BlackJack II (i617) and Glyde (U940).

Pricing starts at $58. The devices are shipping immediately.
