Illustration for article titled Sony Relents After 11 Years, Launches First SD Card Line-up

Big news from the Sony camp today—they're embracing 1999's flash-in-the-pan fad and have launched their first line-up of SD cards. Hopefully that spells the death of the evil Memory Stick and sliding disinterest in their propriety formats.

There's five SD/SDHC cards and three microSD/microSDHC cards on offer, all class-4-speed. The 2GB SD is $14.99, and for SDHCs the 4GB is $29.99, 8GB is $44.99, 16GB is $79.99, 32GB $159.99.

The 2GB microSD is $14.99, 4GB is $29.99 and 8GB is $44.99. All come with adapters and the possibility of a heart-attack being brought on as Sony losing a little more of its stubbornness. [Sony]

I never understood the hate directed at MemoryStick. SD was Canon's baby and MemoryStick was Sony's. Olympus had their own. Why is Canon better than Sony? I don't have a single SD card in my house and I don't plan on ever getting one. For the good camera gear, CF is still king anyway. SD is no better than MS, and never will be. Sure, the occasional laptop comes with a SD reader and not an MS reader, but most do both.
