Although USB 3.0 is expected to be the reigning standard during 2010, the new device is compliant only with USB 2.0. The MobileLiteG2 supports SD, SDHC, microSD, microSDHC, Memory Stick PRO Duo, Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo, and Memory Stick Micro – making it practically the ultimate universal card reader. Since most PDAs, smartphones, and digital cameras use some kind of a memory card, it is only natural that universal card-readers gain popularity.

Sized at 62.15mm x 29.40mm x 16.40mm, the MobileLiteG2 weighs a mere 18.9 grams. This high portability makes it a great accessory for netbooks, which tend to be stripped down from any unnecessary additions (such as card slots). Furthermore, unlike other universal readers, this one doesn’t require an external power supply.

The reader itself is offered at the very convenient price of $11. Kingston also offers bundles, in which consumers get the MobileLiteG2 Reader with an SDHC card. For $28.50 they will get it with a 4GB card, and for $46 the bundle will include an 8GB card. All cards have a lifetime warranty; the reader itself has only two-year warranty.

As mentioned above, TFOT covered the upcoming standard of USB 3.0. TFOT has also covered the new SDHC for Eee PC, made by A-DATA, and the SDXC Format, the next generation SD-format. Another related story is the OCZ Throttle, which integrates eSATA connectivity with a conventional USB drive.
