“Our newest array of flash memory cards provide photo enthusiasts and other mobile device users with more choices based on the speed they need to capture and transfer information; the volume of files they’d like to store; and the host device they are using,” says Laurie Hill, product manager, flash media for PNY Technologies. “No one wants to miss the action or that ideal shot. We are continuing to round out PNY’s flash media portfolio with cards that capture and store even more images, mpeg videos and digital music, quickly.”
