Memory Card

11.12.08

A memory card or flash memory card is a solid-state electronic flash memory data storage device used with digital cameras, handheld and mobile computers, telephones, music players, video game consoles, and other electronics. They offer high re-record-ability, power-free storage, small form factor, and rugged environmental specifications. There are also non-solid-state memory cards that do not use flash memory, and there are different types of flash memory.
