Olympus announces New Type M+ xD-Picture Cards

Olympus updated their co-invention with Fujifilm, the xD-Picture Card, with a faster M+ series in preparing for PMA 2008.

The Multi Level Cell architecture in M type xD media format is capable to produce up to 8GB of storage space but the new series is still stuck in a rather disappointing capacities of 1GB and 2GB model.

New Olympus DSLR coming tonight

Nothing is really known at this point other than the fact that Olympus is releasing a DSLR tonight at midnight. Everything else is pure speculation.
