SanDisk Thursday introduced its new SanDisk Ultra II Mobile line of flash memory cards at CeBIT. The new lineup has faster read and write speeds than previous flash memory cards--making file transfers faster and thus reducing power consumption. The memory cards, with capacities from 1GB to 4GB, are aimed at feature phones that store music, videos and high-resolution digital still images. They are expected to be available this spring.
