Hell freezes over: Sony to sell SD/SDHC and microSD/SDHC cards

Yes, this winter has been cold, but who knew it would be this cold? Sony has announced it will be selling five new SD/SDHC memory cards for digital imaging products, and three new microSD/microSDHC memory cards for mobile phones.

I know what you're thinking, and I'm thinking that same thing: does Sony make anything that actually works with SD cards? [Yes they do, dumby! The Alpha DSLR-A550] Okay, but it's still not their preferred format. Infact, the press release goes on to say:

Memory Stick is the recommended media for Sony products, offering a range of unique benefits. For example, the high-speed “HX” Series’ capabilities are optimized when using the burst shooting mode in Sony’s α (alpha) DSLR cameras, as well as high-speed archiving of high definition movies shot with Handycam® camcorders and Cyber-shot® cameras.

So, yes, they are selling SD cards, but they sorta, kinda don't want you to use them!
