256 MB Memory Stick and 256 MB Memory Stick Pro: a big difference

Today we got to knew that in March, besides new 256Mb, 512Mb and 1Gb Memory Stick Pro, Sony also plans to release 256Mb cards of "older" Memory Stick standard. Letís shed more light on this.

As weíve previously informed Memory Stick Pro is not compatible with Memory Stick despite similar dimensions. One of the first devices that supports Pro cards is Sony DSC-F77. it seems the color scheme is to remind of the incompatibility. By the way, "PRO" means "Professional", "Progressive" and "Protection". As the same time, it turned out that Sony hasn´t yet finished with older format and announced "older" 256Mb MSA-128S2 cards with 128Mbx2 organization, like two cards in a single body. To switch between the capacities one should use the miniature selector on the card body.

According to provisional data, MSA-128S2 will cost about $150 each, and newer 256Mb, 512Mb and 1Gb Memory Stick Pro cards will cost $165, $380 and $760, respectively. As it has turned out, Memory Stick Pro will also be produced by Sandisk (on the first photo).
