Sony Unveils 'Memory Stick Micro' For Phones



Personal Tech Pipeline

Sony announced plans today to ship in March the first Memory Stick Micro ('M2') products with storage capacities of 256MB, 512MB and 1GB. The new memory card is designed for mobile phones. An 'M2' adaptor in the size of a standard Memory Stick will allow users to exchange data to Memory Stick PRO compatible products.

The 'M2' media is approximately one-quarter the volume of 'Memory Stick PRO Duo' media, yet only about 1.2mm thick. 'M2' media is designed as an externally removable media with a controlled eject function to prevent loss. Following the trend of mobile phones that operate at 1.8 volts, the 'M2' has been designed as dual-voltage media. In addition to 1.8 volt support, the media offers 3.3 volt operation which is required for existing 'Memory Stick PRO' compatible products.

The Sony Ericsson M600i, which was also announced today, is the first mobile phone compatible with the 'M2'.

Sony plans to ship the 256MB and 512MB versions of the 'M2' media from March, and the 1GB model from May 2006. The estimated enduser price of the 'M2' media will be similar to the price of the current 'Memory Stick PRO Duo' media.

Well, Microsoft has "unfolded" its "Origami" ultra-mobile PC platform Thursday. It turned out to be a full-featured PC smaller than a tablet but bigger than a PDA. Are you impressed?
Yes! I want one!
Sort of. We'll see.
No! It's too big for a pocket and too small for real computing. What's the point?
