Nokia Embraces SD Card Format

Nokia today announced its support for the SD memory card format. The company has applied for membership in the SD Card Association, and will offer SD-compatible mobile devices starting in the 2nd half of 2005. The move is intended to provide compatibility among future multimedia devices from Nokia and other companies. Nokia will continue to rely on the MMC and RS-MMC formats in parts of its lineup. SD cards generally offer faster transfer rates compared to MMC, while MMC cards are thinner and use less power. Many SD-compatible devices are also compatible with MMC cards.
This is almost too late, though - we'll be seeing a lot of hard drive based phones and PDAs in the next 6-12 months, I think. Memory cards are a slowly dying breed, at least in their current state and capacity.
This is awesome, I've been wanting SD support for a long time now (works well with my PPC).
