SanDisk gruvi Music Card wins CES award
SanDisk Corporation's innovative grūvi music flash memory card, bearing the latest album of the Rolling Stones, has scored a prestigious Innovations Design and Engineering Award from the recently-concluded Consumer Electronics Show 2006 (CES) in Las Vegas. The honor capped a series of year-ending and New Year's accolades for SanDisk products. The grūvi music card, made possible through a unique secure content distribution technology called TrustedFlash, consists of the Stone's "A Bigger Bang" release from EMI Music, digital photos of the band and dozens of tracks from four back catalog albums that can be purchased through e-commerce transactions. The SanDisk grūvi card, which resides on a tiny SanDisk microSD card - about the size of a fingernail - was released in stores just prior to the holidays.
SanDisk gruvi Music Card
SanDisk gruvi Music Card - In announcing the CES Innovations Award, judges said, "SanDisk grūvi cards enable consumers to buy premium entertainment content on flash memory cards for use in mobile phones, MP3 players and other portable devices without compromising the security of copyrighted content." The Rolling Stones grūvi card provides a simple, convenient solution for music playback on mobile phones. These cards illustrate not only the confidence that the major labels have with the TrustedFlash technology, but also the possibilities that are available to manufacturers, operators and content providers.
TrustedFlash technology - Previously, the TrustedFlash technology won the Innovative Product Award at the Fall CTIA show in San Francisco. This award recognized the ability of TrustedFlash to provide a solution that meets both the security needs of the content providers as well as the flexibility and ease-of-use demanded by end users. "Virgin Music's willingness to release a grūvi card with Rolling Stones content is a testament to the label's confidence in this technology," said Pedro Vargas, SanDisk's director of mobile entertainment.
SanDisk Ultra II SD Plus
SanDisk Ultra II SD Plus - The unique SanDisk Ultra II SD Plus flash memory card - which incorporates a built-in USB connector - has received four major accolades. One is the 2006 Mobility Award from MobileTrax LLC, which is a leading source of information on the mobile computing and wireless data communications industry. The awards celebrate the best and finest mobile computing and wireless data communications products and services that were announced in 2005. The SanDisk Ultra II SD Plus card was singled out under the storage category for its innovative design. A user simply folds what appears to be a standard SD card and it becomes a USB drive that can be plugged directly into a USB port without needing a cable connection or a card reader. The card is sold in capacities of 512 megabytes and 1 gigabyte.
SanDisk Ultra II Plus Awarded - Two major U.S. magazines also have recognized the Ultra II SD Plus card. Laptop Magazine, in its February 2006 issue, gave the card an Editor's Choice Award and a 4½-star rating. And the card was included in Popular Science magazine's "100 Best Innovations of the Year" for 2005. SanDisk received the award from Popular Science at CES. The editors' top products of the year were featured in the publication's December issue. Also, the New York Times, in an article published December 29, selected the SanDisk Ultra II SD Plus card as one of the "10 best gadget ideas of 2005."
