Samsung announced a pair of new MMC
card advancements today, introducing both higher density and higher performance cards for all you media-happy junkies out there. The company's touting its NAND
-based MMCplus card as the most capacious in the industry, topping out at a hefty 8GB, with 1GB, 2GB, and 4GB rounding out the line. On the other side of things are a pair of decidedly smaller but speedier 1GB and 2GB cards, promising a read-speed of 40 MB/s and a write-speed of 25 MB/s, which should be enough to transfer six MP3 songs per second. Prices don't seem to have been announced, but the whole lot should be available by the end of the year.
