Panasonic's introduced a pair of SDHC card readers, one PC Card-based and one USB 2.0, which are set to become available at about the same time as Panasonic's recently announced 4G SDHC card towards the end of July. Both card readers are Windows-only (XP or 2000) and, if Google's translation can be trusted, will each go for 5,000 Yen, or about $43 USD. The USB-based card reader also comes with a handy USB cable for anyone without ready access to a USB port.
