<p><em><font size="2">Multifunctional Flash Card Reader Makes Digital Data Transfer
</font></em><font size="2"><strong>Sydney, Australia</strong>– <strong>October
26, 2009</strong> – 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).<br/>
“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
said Vaughan Nankivell, Regional Manager- Australia and New Zealand for Kingston
Technology. “For consumers and business users, the compact size and simple
plug-and-play ability makes it an essential part of one’s mobile gear.”<br/>
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.<br/>
The MobileLiteG2 ships as a stand-alone reader and is also available as a bundle
with a 4GB or 8GB Class 4 SDHC card. The MobileLiteG2 is backed by a two-year
warranty while Kingston cards carry a lifetime warranty. For more information,
