Press release
Tuesday 29 March 2011

Kingston Digital, the flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology, has announced that it is shipping a 4GB and 8GB Class 10 microSDHC card, joining the previously-released 16GB Class 10 card. Kingston also plans to add a 32GB capacity to the family in the second quarter of 2011.

"Kingston's Class 10 microSDHC cards are compatible with many of the latest mobile phones including Android smartphones and BlackBerry devices, HD cameras and the increasingly popular tablet PCs," said Mike Kuppinger, flash card business manager, Kingston. "The Class 10 speed provides faster data transfer rates and the various capacities help satisfy storage needs for users with both light and heavy memory needs."

Kingston takes mobility and versatility a step further when it makes these cards part of the Mobility Kit, which includes an SD adapter and a USB card reader. The SD adapter allows users to capture continuous images or videos in digital cameras while the reader provides a simple and fast way to transfer data to a host PC. The Class 10 microSDHC cards will ship as part of the Mobility at the end of March.

In addition to the Class 10 cards, Kingston currently ships the microSDHC card in a Class 4 specification as both a standalone and part of the Mobility in capacities up to 32GB. The cards are backed by a lifetime warranty and 24/7 live technical support.
