As if we didn't have enough Micro and Mini cards running around, Sony introduces Memory Stick Micro

When will the madness stop? SD, MMC, Memory Stick Pro, Memory Stick Duo, miniSD, microSD/TransFlash, etc, etc. The formats just keep on coming with no signs of consolidation. Sony looks to add yet another standard to the mix with Memory Stick Micro (M2). M2 will launch in capacities of 256MB, 512MB (available in March) and 1GB (available in May):

The 'M2' media is approximately one-quarter the volume of 'Memory Stick PRO Duo' media, yet only about 1.2mm thick. 'M2' media is designed as an externally removable media with a controlled eject function to prevent users losing the media. Following the trend of mobile phones which operate at 1.8 volts, the 'M2' has been designed as dual-voltage media. In addition to 1.8 volt support, the media offers 3.3 volt operation which is required for existing 'Memory Stick PRO' compatible products.
