The modern technologies keep moving into our everyday life at a very rapid pace. So, that the miniature compact storage devices and media keep evolving very quickly.
One of the most widely spread applications for this type of devices is the digital cameras and pocket PCs, which are no going through a real boom of popularity. In the nearest future, we can expect compact personal storage media to become even more demanded, because they will get to the devices where they have never been used before. Here I can certainly list printers, scanners, home DVD players.
I would also like to mention a totally new type of devices that we have recently tested in our lab: the universal multimedia storage viewer from EPSON, which you can read more about in the article called EPSON P-2000 Multimedia Storage Viewer: Great Vacation Companion . If you have read the review you remember, that this device allows viewing digital photos and movies on a small LCD panel. This is exactly the tendency that inspires us to test as many memory cards as possible.
This time we will pay special attention to one of the tiniest compact storage solutions. We would like to introduce to you three SD cards and one RS-MMC card. Before we start let me point out that we dares mix these two different types of storage media in our review, because they are not only close from the dimensions prospective, but also tend to be targeted for the same fields of application.
