Lexar announces professional 1000x microSD UHS-II cards for tablets and smartphones

lexar-logoMicroSD cards have become the standard for phones and tablets these days. The tiny devices allow for easy expansion of storage and most devices are compatible with them. Even some cameras have begun using them as opposed to a standard SD card.

Lexar is one of the top makers of these miniature cards, and at this year’s CES the company expanded its lineup, adding the Professional 1000x microSD UHS II.

“As the many uses for microSD cards grow and evolve, we want to provide users with the best possible workflow solution”, says Adam Kaufman, director of memory card product marketing at Lexar. “The Lexar Professional 1000x microSD UHS-II cards allow users to enjoy the benefits of the latest UHS-II devices, while also performing at the maximum speed threshold of UHS-I devices, and provide exceptionally fast file transfer when used with the included reader. Whether it’s with a tablet, smartphone, or quadcopter, the new Professional 1000x
microSD UHS-II cards will capture and move content faster than ever before”.

The new card comes in multiple versions, ranging from 32GB to 64GB to 128GB. Pricing begins at $59.99 and goes up to $189.99. The devices will be available in the first quarter of this year.
