The 8GB SDHC card will come bundled with a SanDisk MicroMate USB 2.0 reader at no extra charge. SDHC cards require an SDHC-compatible reader, so providing the MicroMate reader with the card ensures that users will be able to connect the card to their computers. The MicroMate reader also works with standard SD cards.
SDHC is the new designation for cards in any SD format larger than 2GB that adhere to the new SD 2.0 specification.
The 8GB SDHC card with MicroMate USB 2.0 reader will be available in April in the United States, Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The bundle will be available in Japan and elsewhere in Asia later in the second quarter. In the United States, the bundle will carry a manufacturer?s suggested retail price of $189.99.
