Lexar has partnered with Eye-Fi to bring out its own range of WiFi enabled SD cards for digital cameras. As with Eye-Fi's own range, the Lexar Shoot-n-Sync automatically transfers stored images to your computer once in range of your network. Initially the card will be available in 2GB capacity, though presumably Lexar will be working on packing in more flash memory alongside the shrunken networking.
Newly announced is Lexar’s value line of Platinum II CompactFlash and SDHC format memory cards. The company has doubled up both storage cards to 16GB with Platinum II 60x 16GB SDHC and Platinium II 80x 16GB CF. The 60x rated SDHC is capable of a minimum sustained write speed of 9MB per second, while the 80x rated CF card boosts the sustained write speed of 12MB per second. The cards will be available later this month and pricing information to be announced. It will include a full version of Lexar Image Rescue 3 recovery software and a six-month trial version of Corel Painter Essentials 4.
Lexar has rolled out a pair of 16GB USB flash drives in its JumpDrive range, the FireFly and Secure II Plus. The FireFly is the more basic of the two, with a simple blue LED indicator to show drive activity and red colored casing. The Secure II, meanwhile, has a built-in capacity meter indicating how much storage space remains. It also includes 256-bit AES encryption software to secure whatever data is on it.
