SanDisk MiniSD 2GB Memory Card
SanDisk flash memory card - "We believe that 2006 will be a milestone year for network operators and handset manufacturers to provide consumers with an array of content that can be downloaded virtually anywhere, anytime on their mobile phones," said Jeff Kost, SanDisk's vice-president of handset business. "Flash card slots in mobile phones are proliferating in response to new usages and services, which are driving the demand for higher capacity memory. We are delighted to supply Verizon Wireless Communications with our highest capacity cards to give their customers the storage they will need when acquiring tracks from the V CAST Music service."
Verizon Wireless - Online music service - Using the Microsoft Windows Media platform, V CAST Music runs on Verizon Wireless' broadband network. The library of music is expected to include one million songs by spring from major labels such as Warner, EMI, Universal, Sony/BMG and independent provider, The Orchard. Verizon Wireless customers will be able to download songs over the air and store them on SanDisk flash cards, where they can be played on the phone as well as transferred to a Microsoft Windows-based personal computer. V CAST Music will allow customers to take their own digital music from their PCs and sync it to their handsets, a capability that Verizon said is unique among over-the-air music.
SanDisk 2GB miniSD - Flash memory storage - "SanDisk's high-capacity memory cards allow Verizon Wireless customers to optimize their experience," said Patrick Bucci, Verizon Wireless director of accessory products. "Our customers have the flexibility to choose as much memory as they need to take advantage of the V CAST Music service. SanDisk offers the highest capacity cards available to store our users' personal music, pictures and videos on their phone."
Verizon V CAST Music - Verizon Wireless plans to launch V CAST Music on January 16 with several phones, including the Samsung a950 and the LG VX8100. Both are clamshell V CAST-enabled phones with 1.3 Megapixel digital cameras.
