Memory Stick Micro Gets Invaded by Lexar


Lexar isn’t only interested in creating WiFi-enabled SD cards these days. Expanding its portfolio just a touch further, Lexar Media has announced that it will now be offering Memory Stick Micro (M2) mobile memory cards. The format had previously been dominated by SanDisk and Sony.

Memory Stick Micro cards are a proprietary memory format for Sony products and Lexar recognizes that there is a definite demand for the cards, especially about Sony Ericsson Walkman phone owners. Lexar will be selling 2GB and 4GB variants at launch, which is set to occur a little later this year.

Pricing has not been announced, but I imagine that Lexar will keep itself within the same range established by Sony and SanDisk.
