Kingston & Paramount Partnership = Movies on SD Cards

12Nov09

Flash Memory maker, Kingston Digital announced that has struck a deal with Paramount Pictures to bring full-length movies on SD memory cards.

With so many formats of storage out there, and falling prices for SD cards, this might just be the idea to be a hit with the masses. DVD drives and SD card slots are in most computers. If you have a netbook, an SD card slot is most likely in there, making Kingston’s decision a no-brainer.

Then again, it might not be such a smart idea. Other flash makers such as Sandisk have tried to load music albums onto microSD cards with little success. I believe it’s just simpler to skip any physical media storage and go right to digital. The success of the iPod comes to mind. With storage capacities for gadgets ballooning by the month, even SD cards may be dead in five years time.

No information on whether or not the movies would be HD-ready video or not.
