SanDisk 4GB M2 Memory Stick Micro
SanDisk announced the availability of the 4GB Memory Stick Micro (M2) card. With the capacity to hold up to 1,000 MP3 songs, 9,600 high-resolution photos or up to 20 hours of MPEG4 video2, the 4GB M2 is compatible with Sony Ericsson’s latest generation of slim line, multimedia mobile handsets such as the Cybershot and Walkman series. “Music, video, photos, games - these are the types of content driving the need for higher capacity cards such as the 4GB M2,” said Jeff Kost, vice president and general manager of the Mobile Consumer Solutions division at SanDisk. “This trend is expected to grow as consumers embrace the mobile lifestyle and demand more storage-intensive features from a mobile device.”

The SanDisk 4GB Memory Stick Micro format was co-developed by SanDisk and Sony Corporation to meet the growing storage needs of highly compact, multimedia mobile phones. The M2 measures 0.59” long x 0.49” wide x 0.05” high, or 15mm x 12.5mm x 1.2mm, making it the second smallest flash memory media in the world, behind the microSD format, which SanDisk pioneered.
