October 13, 2006 – Transcend Information Inc. announced last week their 8GB and 4GB SDHC (Secure Digital High-Capacity) Class 2 flash memory cards. The Transcend 8GB SDHC card will retail for $213, and the 4GB will retail for $97.40 when the cards become available at the end of this month, according to a Transcend representative.
