“Flash Card With U.S.B. Connector For Downloading Data Directly”
That’s the headline for Michel Marriott’s breathless article in last Thursday’s New York Times Circuits section, about SanDisk’s forthcoming flash memory chip incorporating a U.S.B. connector.
SanDisk unveiled it with much hoopla at last month’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
It’s going to be released in April, with memory capacity and price yet to be announced.
Hey, Michel and SanDisk, guess what?
You don’t have to wait till April to get one: Apple’s already selling ‘em for $99.
Oh, yeah, I almost forgot: Apple will also throw in a music player, earphones, a lanyard, a rechargeable battery, and the coolest design on the planet.
Better rethink that price structure, eh, SanDisk?
