The folks at Kingston have alerted me to the release of a very cool and tiny USB card reader. The MobileLite reader is sold alone for just $8.99 or with either a 1 or 2 GB SD card bundle or a 1 GB MicroSD (prices below). Take a look at the photo of the MobileLite and you’ll see why I can’t wait to get one of these in my hot little hands, it is about as small as can be and still read 9 different card formats. Here’s the deets from Kingston, note the way it handles drive letters:
The new MobileLite USB Reader works with nine different memory card formats: microSD; miniSD; full-size Secure Digital; SDHC; MMCmicro; MMCmobile, RS-MMC; MMCplus and full-size MMC. When in use, MobileLite appears as three drive letters (for example G:, H: and I:) and data transfer is as simple as drag and drop.
MobileLite Card Reader with 1GB SD Card Bundle p/n: FCR-ML+SD/1GB = $ 22.99 MSRP
MobileLite Card Reader plus 2GB SD Card Bundle p/n: FCR-ML+SD/2GB = $ 34.99 MSRP
MobileLite Card Reader plus 1GB microSD Card Bundle p/n: FCR-ML+SDC/1GB = $ 23.99 MSRP
