SanDisk Unveils Fingernail-sized Storage Media

The company claimed in a statement that its SanDisk T-Flash is the world's smallest removable flash memory storage format. The company said that, at 11 mm x 15 mm x 1 mm, it is about a quarter the size of the smallest removable flash cards now sold for add-on storage.

SanDisk said that T-Flash was specifically designed for forthcoming 3G mobile phones with storage-intensive applications, such as the need to store photos, songs or personal information.

"The T-Flash product family is, we believe, a revolutionary product that will be an important enabler for the rapid adoption of vastly more exciting multimedia cell phones," Eli Harari, SanDisk's president and CEO, said in a statement.

Two 3G phones announced last week by Motorola will use 32-Mbyte T-Flash, SanDisk said. Those phones are expected to be available later this year. The company said that volume production is expected to start in the second quarter and prices for device vendors will range from $14 to $39, depending on capacity. Capacities will range from 32 Mbytes to 128 Mbytes.
