Kingston takes over the World

Well, the World according to Toshiba, anyway

Kingston Technology is to become the exclusive supplier of memory to Toshiba worldwide.

The memory behemoth today signed a deal with Toshiba in Tokyo, adding to existing agreements in Europe and the US. A Kingston spokesperson said the deal was exclusive.

Under the terms of the agreements, Kingston will supply Toshiba-badged PC66, PC100 and SODIMM memory.

Kingston will work with Toshiba Japan's engineers to develop memory modules that Toshiba will qualify and evaluate.

"Kingston Technology and Toshiba's current partnership in North America and Europe attests that a global relationship will prove successful," claimed John Tu, president and co-founder of Kingston. ®
