Lexar Platinum II and Standard Line Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) Flash Memory Cards
Lexar is providing additional value to both the Platinum II and Standard SDHC flash memory card packages by including an SDHC-enabled card reader that allows for high-speed data transfer from card to destination device.
Lexar Platinum II 4GB SDHC cards and Standard Lexar 4GB SDHC cards will be available in February at a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $99.99 and $79.99, respectively.
SDHC cards are based on the Secure Digital Association's 2.0 specifications, utilizing the FAT32 file system. While the form factor of SDHC cards is identical to that of standard SD cards, SDHC cards are not backwards compatible with standard SD host devices, meaning that SDHC cards cannot be used in standard SD host devices. SDHC cards are specifically designed for use with SDHC-enabled devices, and allow users to leverage the higher capacity offered by the card within those devices.
