Kingston Digital, Inc., the Flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced the release of the MobileLiteG2 card reader. The MobileLiteG2 is the second generation of the popular MobileLite Flash card reader, which allows easy data transfer between Flash memory cards and PC or Mac. Supported card formats include SD, SDHC, microSD, microSDHC, *Memory Stick® PRO Duo™, *Memory Stick® PRO-HG Duo™ and *Memory Stick® Micro™ (*M2).

“The MobileLiteG2 is a small, portable reader that makes managing content quick and convenient between a device like a mobile phone, digital camera or MP3 player, and a host device with a USB connection such as a PC,” said Wendy Lecot, Flash card business manager, Kingston. “For consumers and business users, the compact size and simple plug-and-play ability makes it an essential part of one’s mobile gear.”

The MobileLiteG2 has retractable covers on each side to protect the USB connector and the Flash memory cards from damage. It ships with a lanyard and short USB extension cable to make it easier to use with harder-to-reach USB slots. When in use, the MobileLiteG2 appears as two drive letters (e.g., E:\, F:\). Data transfer between cards or host device is as simple as drag and drop.
