Panasonic says when it will ship 32GB SDHC

Panasonic's 32GB SDHC memory card

The card, a prototype of which was shown off by Panasonic at last month's CES show in Las Vegas, carries a Class 6 speed classification, allowing it to transfer data at a sustained rate of at least 6MB/s.

Panasonic claims the card, which is officially called RP-SDV32GU1K, is ideal for AVCHD video recording and will be able to store roughly 12 hours of 1440 x 1080i HD video content.

But it's expected to retail at a pricey $700 (£350/€400).

SanDisk has also developed a 32GB SDHC memory card, which is also expected to find its way onto shelves in April, but for a more pocket-friendly $350 (£176/€235).
