Lexar touts 4GB, 8GB SDHC cards

Lexar announced today that it will be releasing SDHC cards in both the Platinum II and Standard lines in 4GB and 8GB capacities, which should hit "later this year." The 4GB Platinum II, which are rated to sustain transfers of 9MB per second, will retail in February for $100, while its Standard counterpart will cost $80. We're not sure how much the 8GB cards will cost, but we're hoping it won't be more than double, because that would be just plain silly.
