At the PMA conference in Las Vegas today, SanDisk announced two new Ultra II SHDC cards that push the envelope on SDHC storage. The new SDHC cards, which are designed for digital cameras and camcorders, are now available in 16GB and 32GB flavors. Capacities weren’t the only aspect that changed, however, as the cards now offer an increased 15MB/sec read and write speed as opposed to the earlier 10MB/sec and 9MB/sec. I’m still drooling as I dream of the day when these powerhouse memory cards come to cell phones. The 32GB card can store over 8,000 high-res pictures or 40-hours of video (set to a 640 x 480 resolution at 15 fps). It’s a perfect option for those who want to snap thousands of pictures of Eli Manning’s Super Bowl win over the Patriots this weekend. Both cards also come packaged with a USB 2.0 card-reader. The 16GB card will be available in March for $179, while the 32GB flavor will be available slightly later in April. The 8GB SDHC Plus cards will be available for $99.
