SanDisk Event – We are LIVE!

SanDisk Event – We are LIVE!

Well you know that SanDisk event that I mentioned yesterday? Yeah, we wound up there, it’s all kind of hazy how, but somehow Vincent wound up in LA surrounded by extremely attractive members of the opposite sex and ice sculptures.

He has been generous enough to bless us with pics, and soon to come, videos. For now we have these pictures, more will be added as they come.

SanDisk drops 8GB microSDHC card

Well, with the iPhone and iPod Touch coming in 8GB capacities a single expansion card slightly larger than the home button on both of the aforementioned devices is nothing to dismiss. That means that you can take just about any modern phone and grant it the same storage capacity of the iPhone.

There are also M2 cards in the same capacity for those that have compatible devices with those cards. Anyways, like I said, 8GB of storage is a lot when it can all be fit on such a tiny, tiny card.


Sandisk files lawsuit against everyone

SanDisk is well-known for their flash memory. Any electronics store you walk into is going to carry their flash drives. They won’t be the only ones you see though, there will be up to a couple of dozen products from other manufacturers on the shelves as well. Take a good look at the competition there, as SanDisk is suing each and every one of them.


Sansa TakeTV and Fanfare beta

Today SanDisk is announcing an end to end PC to TV video solution. Basically what it enables you to do is browse on your computer for TV shows, and I am sure other video, and download it, then move it from your PC to the TV where you would normally watch that type of stuff.

No more squinting in front of a PC monitor to watch the latest episode of House! The content on Fanfare is free for now, but they are/will be offering your choice of free (supported by ads) or paid content.


SanDisk View redesigned to directly compete with iPod Nano

So you want to sell a few more units of your first ever flash-based music and video player, what do you do? You scrap the original full-screen design and go with a model that looks, and surprisingly works, almost just like an Apple product.

That seems to be the way things work these days, if you want to move any units at all, make whatever it is you are making look and function like some Apple product. Even though this player bests the Nano in screen real estate at 2.4 inches, the Nano will probably still sell more.


SanDisk Shipping 8GB Memory Stick Micro M2 Flash Cards

They aren’t quite shipping them to the public yet, instead they are shipping them to phone manufacturers and wireless network operators so they can test and try them out. Apparently they are just about only used in Sony Ericsson phones for storage of music, pics, and vids.

I suppose the idea of shipping these enormous flash cards for various phones and devices is that most media player manufacturers are hitting around the 4-8GB range in their players and they are selling like crazy. So instead of letting them take the entire market, they are just making cards to go in their mobile devices that make them comparable options.


SlashGear Review: SanDisk Cruzer Contour USB Flash Drive

Right now, USB drives seem to fall into one of three categories.  You’ve got your bargain basement, no-brand sorts, often to be found as giveaways full of promotional literature at trade shows; then there are the bizarre drives, shaped like sushi or animals.  Finally, there are the drives that aim to be the modern-day version of a gentleman’s cigarette holder (only far more socially acceptable and a darn sight healthier); something weighty and classically designed, which you can fiddle with while you’re not actually using.  SanDisk are decidedly proud of their Cruzer Contour, a drive falling resolutely into that final category, and they sent one over to SlashGear hoping that we’d like it so much we’d let them get to second-base.



SanDisk Extreme Ducati Edition lives up to its name

It’s no secret that everyone wants to team up with a car manufacturer to sell sleek new notebooks. SanDisk has decided that they feel left out and teamed up with motorcycle maker Ducati to crate a sleek USB flash drive.


SanDisk announces 6GB and 8GB MicroSDHC cards

If your mobile device needs some extra storage space (sorry iPhone buyers, this isn’t for you) then you might be excited to hear that SanDisk has announced new 6GB and 8GB variants of their MicroSDHC memory cards.


SanDisk announces 64GB SSD drives

While it doesn’t have anything on the 256GB drive from PQI, SanDisk has introduced their 64GB SSD drive for notebooks.


SanDisk’s latest memory is especially flash

If you ever want a good cure for insomnia, find the nearest old British Conservative and ask them their opinion on the gold standard and whether it was the right thing to do to uncouple the pound from it.  I promise you’ll be asleep in around four minutes.  Still, the best thing about gold is the silly ways companies cast it in order to advertise or add that “luxury edge” to a product; today it’s SanDisk’s turn, and their $5,000 solid gold memory cards.



Sandisk’s WiFi DAP Sansa Connect gets hands-on feedback

There was once a time when I was ashamed to admit that I didn’t own an iPod.  Now being resistant to Apple’s charms is discretely admired, and while the iconic DAP might still be synonymous with portable music for the man (or woman) in the street, the tech-aware are beginning to look further afield for their mp3 hit.  Contrary to popular bile, Microsoft’s Zune really did stand a chance – WiFi could’ve been their winning stroke, had they considered its potential long-term affect on the market and not the short-term walled garden of the three play/three day approach – and now it has been roundly trounced it turns to Sandisk and their Sansa Connect to fly the “iPod may be pretty but we want something less saturated” flag.


Read on for a round-up of hands-on first impressions, as well as some user feedback…
