SanDisk Introduces 1-Gigabyte CompactFlash CardNew Card Gives Consumers Enough Capacity to Store Large Amounts of Digital Images, Music or Video (November 05, 2001)
Nelson Chan, senior vice president and general manager of SanDisk's retail business unit, said, "Introducing a 1GB CompactFlash card in the Type I format is a technological breakthrough for SanDisk, the company that introduced the CompactFlash card. With a gigabyte of storage capacity, consumers will be able to store extended movie clips in the latest generation of digital cameras that offer this exciting new feature. These cards demonstrate how rapidly flash technology is moving forward and provide the first indication of how SanDisk's technology will begin to displace recording tapes and disks in future consumer audio and video products."
The 1GB SanDisk CompactFlash card is expected to be available at retail in Q1 2002. The card is expected to sell for under $800. In October, the company introduced SanDisk Ultra(TM) CompactFlash cards, a new line of high-speed storage cards for the digital photography market.
