Kingston Digital (, the flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology, has released a 16GB microSDHC Class 10 card. It complies with the SD™ Association Specification 3.00 to meet Class 10 requirements.

The 16GB microSDHC card has a minimum data transfer rate of 10MB/second and ships either as a stand-alone microSDHC card or with adapters. It costs US$138.

“Now that the Class 10 card specification is five times faster than a Class 2 card, users will see swifter copying and transferring of photos, music, videos and e-books when using a multi-format card reader such as the Kingston Media Reader or MobileLiteG2 with a personal computer,” says Wendy Lecot, flash card business manager, Kingston.
