Kingston 1G microSD card with dual adapters

If you've ever been in a situation where all of your full-size SD memory cards are full, but you have a microSD with room for a bunch of shots on it, an adapter would be very useful. It would also be useful if your PC card reader can't handle the micro SDs that your newest camera uses, or if you want to standardize on one size card but have cameras or other gadgets with different size slots.

A number of companies make adapters that allow small cards to be used in big slots, but memory maker Kingston Technology is apparently the first company to market a microSD card bundled with two adapters to maximize compatibility and interoperability of the increasingly popular microSD Flash memory cards among multiple device platforms.

You can use the miniSD or standard SD card adapter with a microSD card to enjoy music, pictures and videos or easily transport files from the mobile phone to an MP3 player, digital camera, PC or printer.

Consisting of a 1 GB microSD card; a microSD to miniSD card adapter; and a microSD to full-size SD card adapter, the new microSD dual adapter pack has a $39.99 suggested retail price, but you might find it for less than half that price. $15 - $18 is a good price for a 1-gig chip alone, so it's like getting the adapters for free. There's a lifetime warranty for the 1 GB microSD card, and 24/7 technical support.
This is a preview, not a review.
